Payroll Processing Services

Payroll processing is an essential aspect of any businesses HR operations as it involves the payment of employees for the work they have performed. It is a complex process that involves a series of steps, starting from gathering employee information to disbursing payslips.

How is payroll processed?

The first step in the payroll process is gathering information about the employees, including basic information such as name, address, National Insurance Number, tax information, and pay rate. Employers need to ensure that this information is accurate and up-to-date, as errors can lead to issues with payroll taxes and compliance.

Calculate Payslips

Once the employee information is gathered, the payroll processing service provider or the in-house payroll team will calculate the payslips based on the employee’s hours worked, overtime, and any other relevant factors such as bonuses, commissions, or deductions. The payroll processing team will also calculate the taxes owed by the employee and the employer and ensure that they are paid in a timely and accurate manner.

Direct Deposits

Direct deposit is a common method of payment for employees. In this method, the employee’s pay is deposited directly into their bank account, eliminating the need for paper cheques. Direct deposit is not only convenient for employees but also saves time and money for the employer.


Timesheets or time tracking systems are also an essential part of the payroll process. These systems help to track the hours worked by employees, making it easier to calculate the correct pay and ensure compliance with labour laws. Time tracking systems can be automated or manual, and they can be integrated with the payroll processing system for a seamless process.

Submit employee payroll

After the payroll has been calculated, the next step is to submit the employee payroll. This involves sending the employee payslips or initiating direct deposits. It is essential to ensure that the payroll is processed accurately and on time to avoid issues such as disgruntled employees, penalties, or legal disputes.

Make sure you keep track of payroll records

Keeping track of payroll records is also critical. These records include employee information, pay rates, taxes, and any other relevant details. Payroll records must be accurate, up-to-date, and secure. In addition to meeting legal and compliance requirements, maintaining accurate payroll records can help businesses make informed decisions, such as budgeting and forecasting.
