Payroll Processing

The prime purpose of payroll processing is to ensure that employees are paid accurately, on time every time.

Simple?   Not so – even if you employ only one employee – you now have a payroll processing function added to the many other things that are required to run a successful business.

The Payroll processing function in any business is no longer just a matter of paying an amount into an employee’s bank account at the end of each pay period. Employers now have a host of functions associated with the paying of employees, ensuring compliance with;

  • SARS – Payment of PAYE, SDL & UIF  on a monthly basis
  • SARS August & Tax Year End submissions and balancing
  • Issuing of Tax Certificates (IRP5’s and IT3a’s)
  • Department of Labour for UIF – monthly electronic update regarding staff
  • Depart of Labour for COIDA (Compensation of Injuries & Diseases Act) – Annual Return
  • Employment Equity requirements  - storing of information for this application
  • Workskills Plan – storing of training details for this return
  • SA Statistics - should a company get selected to complete this return, then quarterly returns are required detailing staff headcounts, salaries, overtime etc.

In addition to the above statutory information - the following information is also required:

  • Payment of 3rd Parties e.g. Medical Aid & Retirement Funds (Pension or Provident Funds) and supplying of supporting documentation
  • Paying across Garnishee payments and maintenance of the balances
  • Keeping accurate leave records – unrecorded leave can cost a company plenty!
