Your frequently asked questions on Payroll calculator

What is Payroll?

In its simplest terms, payroll is the list of employees within a company who are entitled to receive payments as well as other work benefits from a business. One of the most important parts of any payroll is the calculations of amounts that each employee should receive on each pay day. As figures may change each month; payrolls are generally generated for each individual pay date.

Payrolls may also list a company’s records of previous payments made to employees, including salaries and wages, bonuses, and taxes. A business may handle all aspects of the payroll process in-house or can outsource aspects to a payroll processing company.

What is a Payroll Calculator?

A payroll calculator is generally a software application that provides various payroll calculations. One of the fundamental things it will do is calculate and distribute wages to employees. It may also send money to other interested parties like regulatory boards and the tax office.

The software will automate many of the tasks of payroll. It can often take much of the information required to perform its calculations from the login details of staff. It will then complete payroll at specific time intervals set out by the business and distribute monies accordingly.

Payroll calculators may also be able to automatically consider the legal and tax obligations of a company and its staff. This is vital for preventing issues that may take time and resources to fix or cause problems with regulatory bodies.

2. A way to automatically calculate tax and National Insurance burdens for staff. These should be easily amendable if required to keep up to date and in line with government regulations.
3. A way to automatically record tax burdens of the business. Nearly all payroll calculators will calculate business tax details and obligations.
