Many people are Online and searching for ways to be able to make money from home. While some feel uncomfortable moving away from the traditional 9 to 5 job, others are branching out and wanting to make money on their own terms. Data Entry positions are a great way for an individual to make money from home, and help Companies keep their costs down.
You may have seen the ads in your local newspaper, or Online. Data Entry positions available for those with access to a computer. Why do companies want people to do this work from home? To employ someone in their office space requires not only the expense of the space, but they are also required to pay for insurance for their employees, higher cost in utility usage, and some pay into pension funds. When an Employer hires what some call a “Contract Employee”, they are able to pay a fair wage for work which an individual can complete in their own home. This in turn saves the Company on cost and a valuable service is provided.
Many types of Data Entry Work exist. Some employees require information to be entered electronically for their records, which may include purchase orders or requests for information from their company. Other companies use Data Entry workers to electronically record information from surveys in order to better understand and serve their customers. Another popular form of Data Entry is Medical Coding and Billing, where sensitive information is entered into the system for billing and tracking purposes. This type of Data Entry position often requires specific educational training.
Some companies hire individuals to transcribe audio tapes in order to keep paper or electronic record of meetings and voice notes. Payroll Management is another type of Data Entry position which would more likely than not require specific educational training. The company, when advertising the position will specify whether you should have experience or not, and whether or not you should have completed some type of educational course or degree to work in the position.
Many companies have moved ahead with Online ordering services but due to the fact that many consumers still do not have access to the Internet or prefer to order merchandise offline, their orders come in the mail or over the phone. While these companies are happy to accommodate these customers, their ordering information still needs to be entered into their electronic system for order fulfillment.
The Employer pays the ‘Contract Employee’ a basic wage, without having to pay into any pension fund, or tax system. They do have to keep record of the wages paid, but are not responsible for any other costs involved with employees. It is the individual Contract Employee who must declare this income, as it is not automatically done by the employer for them. As no tax is deducted from the pay it is also up to the Contract worker to declare this income for tax purposes.
Professionalism is a must in this industry. And being able to work from home is often a dream come true for many. Many companies offer informational packages on the employment position, any educational requirements and wages. Often times the rate of pay depends on the volume of work completed.
