Payroll Processing Procedures

Using the Correct Payroll Processing Procedures

If you manage a business or if you are in charge of your company’s HR department, you will know just how important it is to use the correct payroll processing procedures. This is essential for any business, regardless of its size or the industry that you are in.

Your payroll is extremely important as this will have a direct effect on when your employees will be paid as well as all the relevant deductions that should be made from their salaries or wages. Whether you pay your employees on a weekly or a monthly basis, you should always make sure that their salaries are not only correct, but that you accurately calculate the deductions that should be made from them. The amount of income tax that you deduct should be accurately reflected in these amounts should be paid over to SARS on a monthly basis. Income tax will only be payable if an employee earns more than the minimum threshold as set out by SARS, which is why it is important to keep track of any updates and changes when it comes to income tax.

Your payroll processing procedures should also include the ability to have access to accurate reports regarding your employees and the salaries paid out to them. This is an expense for your company and having access to accurate information and transactions is always relevant when you have to make important business decisions. This is why your payroll should be accurate at all times and done on time so that these transactions can be captured and the relevant reports can be generated.

In order for your payroll processing procedures to be in place, there are a few aspects to consider. This includes document processing, data entry, compensation structures, timesheet collection, record-keeping, as well as the adherence to the relevant legislation. Many business owners find it difficult to keep track of all this, especially when it comes to smaller- and medium-sized businesses that do not have the resources to have a larger accounting team on site. This is why more and more business owners are starting to outsource their payroll and accounting requirements to a dedicated team that can handle all their requirements as well as take care of their responsibilities in terms of taxes and other regulations.
