Payroll Software FAQs

Payroll is a vital part of any business. The primary reason people work is to generate money. Yes, job satisfaction is important, but if employees aren’t being paid accurately and on time, they are likely to start looking for alternate employment. Employees expect to be paid on an agreed date with visibility on how they were renumerated. This places immense pressure on payroll team to ensure calculations are accurate based on a diverse range of factors. A comprehensive payroll system should cater for all the pay types, multiple pay calendars, awards, provision policies, shift types, work schedules and even backdated policies.
Payroll can be challenging for most businesses. Ensuring an accurate, compliant, and timely pay run each and every pay cycle requires payroll team to successfully manage a number of interconnected dependencies that are rarely seen and generally not appreciated by the broader business. From ensuring compliance, satisfying pay conditions, and maintaining security, to integrating multiple interconnected systems and managing various business structures, each payroll department will face their own unique challenges.
Payroll software is designed to automate the complexities of managing employee renumeration. Managing payroll in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands can be extremely complex with legislation every changing, for example STP2 and Superannuation. Payroll software helps organisations ensure accurate and compliant payroll each and every pay cycle. Today’s payroll software should cater for all industries, sizes, and business complexity for example multi-entity. Because payroll calculations are based on a diverse range of factors, payroll software should cater for all the pay types, multiple pay calendars, awards, provision policies, shift types, work schedules and even backdated policies.
Everyone benefits from implementing payroll software, especially if it’s cloud software. The majority of small to medium businesses won’t typically have a dedicated human resources department, meaning people & payroll processing often lands on a few individuals. Payroll software enables business to be more agile, deliver better visibity to exectuives and managers as well as provide autonomy to employees to self-serve core functions such as view work schedules, request leave, view payslips and communicate with manager and teams.
