This course will equip you with an understanding of basic payroll procedures and also those who wish to become professional payroll processors. You will develop the skills required to prepare, check, and use source documents from which the payroll is processed, using a computerised payroll system as dictated by Real Time Information requirements. You will also develop skills that will enable you to gather the required information in order to prepare an employee payroll record using either the HMRC Basic PAYE Tools kit or commercially available payroll software. The course will also teach you how to calculate the gross pay due to employees from a simple range of information sources and for either weekly or monthly pay periods.
