Every payroll specialist, office administrator, HR professional, and business owner should know the basics of payroll. Whether you do payroll in house or pay a third party professional, you need to know how your payroll is processed, the procedures that are followed and why they were created. And ultimately, the business owner assumes all the responsibility for any errors and mistakes that are made, and as ignorance is not a defense, not understanding the nuts and bolts of payroll is not a good business strategy. Employees’ primary reason for working is to get paid, and making sure you get their paycheck right each and every payroll is imperative to your employee’s morale as well as your company’s financials.
At the end of this session you will be able to:
- Know the difference between Federal and State payroll requirements;
- Know where to look for information regarding payroll;
- Know what taxes and reporting requirements there are for payroll;
- Understand paychecks and what they say.
