Define payroll policy
The net amount to be paid is affected by various factors. The company’s various policies such as pay policy, loan policy, leave and benefits policy, attendance policy, etc. come into play at that time. As a first step, such policies need to be well outlined and get approved by the management to ensure standard payroll processing.
Payroll process involves co-ordinating with multiple departments and personnel. There can be information like mid-year salary revision data, attendance data, etc.
In smaller organizations, these inputs are received from a consolidated source or fewer teams. However, in a larger organization, the task of gathering data may look overwhelming. If you are using a smart payroll software having integrated features like leave and attendance management, employee self-service portal, etc. inputs collection process does not remain a problem.
Salary Input Validation
Once salary inputs are areceived, you need to check for validity of the data concerning adherence to company policy, authorization/approval matrix, right formats, etc. You also need to ensure that no active employee is missed out and that no inactive employee records are included for salary payment
