Industry Performance

The Payroll and Bookkeeping Services industry provides payroll and bookkeeping services on an outsourced basis. The industry has experienced steady growth over the five years to 2019 as clients increasingly subcontracted back-office administrative activities to take advantage of strengthening economic conditions, enabling them to focus their efforts on core business functions.

Additionally, the rising complexity of payroll and benefits payments and deductions has led businesses to increasingly outsource these functions to industry operators to ensure compliance. As the number of businesses in the United States has grown over the past five years, the industry's client base has expanded.
