PAYROLL FOUNDATION SKILLS (LEVEL 1) ONLINE

This webinar is offered in partnership with the New Zealand Payroll Practitioners Association (NZPPA).

FOR
Staff new to payroll or who act as a back up to payroll and small business owners that need an understanding of how to process a basic payroll for their employees.

PURPOSE
Payroll is one of the largest costs a business has and it is important that staff that are involved in payroll fully understand how payroll is processed and the different steps and requirements (legislative and agreed terms) impact on its processing.

If payroll is not processed in a structured and logical way it can easily become non-compliant the result can then mean that employees are not paid correctly and the employer is put at risk of penalties and fines from external agencies and challenges from their own employees.

This entry level payroll course covers off the basic payroll process steps and payroll activities that are present in any payroll (manually processed or using a computerised payroll application).

It will provide new payroll staff with a clear understanding of what the steps are and why they are done.

Each participant will be provided with a comprehensive course manual full of references that also includes templates and basic payroll process steps and procedures.

The course will be run online
