Payroll Training

A company’s payroll records all of the current employees and how much they are paid, as well as details of previous payments and any former employees. It is very important to keep an accurate and up to date payroll for any business, helping to keep track of wages, bonuses, and when individuals were paid.

Payroll is usually handled by a certain department within the company, or through an external payroll company. This specific department handles all of the aspects of the employee payroll, including timesheets, salary calculation, production and distribution of paychecks, bank transfers, and taxes.

Keeping an accurate payroll is an important part of any business, not only allowing for accurate budgets, but also making sure that all the salaries and taxes are within the relevant laws and regulations of your country.

If you are looking for practical training for setting up and maintaining an accurate payroll for your employees, then Hawkish Institute can help you. We offer training in all aspects of payroll, from Graduate to Professional level. Based in Canary Wharf, our training schemes can help you and your team get the experience you need to find a career or expand in your current industry.
