Payroll Software in 2021

Accurate and timely payroll, in 2021, is possible only when the HR manager and human resource team has robust cloud-based accounting systems in place.

Current challenges in the payroll process

Salary processing is a critical part of workforce management for all businesses irrespective of the industry type. Any error in payroll computation and related services like wrong payroll calculations, incorrect tax deductions, attendance records errors, etc. can cost an organization dearly in the form of penalties. It also makes your employees unhappy!

Below is the list of some major challenges in payroll that Human resource professionals experience during the processing of employee salaries:

  • Cumbersome Multi-stage Salaries
  • Incorrect Employee Classification
  • Inaccurate Time Tracking
  • Tiring Tax Deductions
  • Repetitive Salary Calculations
  • Irregular Cluttered Reports

Stages in Processing of Salary

Opting for a complete payroll management solution is a big relief for private limited and public sector companies. Automated payroll software includes various built-in tools to support different stages of the salary process that makes the whole activity hassle-free and quicker.

Correct employee classification

By the proper classification of employees, companies can determine who are eligible for tax exemptions and who are not right at the time of employee onboarding. Similarly, it helps in structuring your organization to be more robust and organized. This aids a lot in making the process of calculating the salary of the employees automatic and easier.

Time tracking and attendance

Before calculating the final amount, you need to consider some important parameters such as loss of pay (LOP), approved leaves, unapproved leaves, reimbursements and compensatory amount (if any). HR payroll software will help in keeping track of all these employee information as well as manage the employee benefits.

Calculation of benefits

The employee receives several benefits based on their tenure, designation, etc. As these benefits act as incentives for the employees to work better, these must be calculated accurately. A robust payroll management solution would be able to automate this process thus ensuring error-free salary computation.

Tax deductions

Some common types of deductions are provident fund (PF), employees' state insurance (ESIC) and professional tax (PT). ESIC covers the health insurance of employees, while professional tax is the tax collected by the Indian government. Robust HR payroll software will automate these calculations and increase the operational efficiency of the organization.

Crediting salary

This refers to the process in which the payroll team issues employees salaries. It is usually done as a direct deposit in the employees' bank accounts. Adequate care should be taken so that the final amount is calculated accurately and is in statutory compliance. As HR processes it, there is always a margin of human error, which can be avoided with the help of good payroll solutions.
