Employee costs from payroll and other benefits are significant expenses in all organisations and are often the highest expense in service businesses. The payroll function is also probably the only function that affects every employee. Therefore, payroll management is a critical strategic skill that requires an in-depth understanding of statutory compliance, detailed tax knowledge and a highly efficient and organised system that can be relied on to minimise errors and maximise value.

Business leaders need to ensure that their payroll teams are equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge, and techniques to perform their duties to the highest standard. In addition, business professionals saddled with payroll responsibility should fully comprehend what it entails to manage an organisation’s payroll, generate insights, mitigate risks and ensure total compliance in line with the peculiarities of the organisation and country.

The ever-changing regulatory landscape demands that businesses and payroll professionals constantly update their knowledge, adopt best practices and establish a truly strategic payroll structure.
