To take into account

The payroll department is responsible for ensuring their organisation is compliant with a wide breadth of statutory and contractual obligations. The diligent payroll department should identify and document the key processes required to achieve this aim. However, this is a daunting undertaking without guidance or experience. This course covers all the fundamental aspects to consider, from designing optimal processes for starters and leavers, managing absence processes and ensuring all year-end processes are completed. Also covered are the wider considerations such as data protection, version control, interaction with other internal and external stakeholders and company policies.

Individuals who are responsible for payroll processes and managing the formal compilation of their payroll procedures manual. This course would also be useful for those that are preparing for the Payroll Assurance Scheme. Looking to develop your knowledge further?
