  • Calculating bonus and benefits payments.

  • Creating and maintaining records for all staff.

  • Liaising with HR departments on personnel matters.
  • Managing teams of payroll specialists (in the case of Payroll Managers).

Payroll specialists often need to be familiar with a number of payroll software programmes.

Qualifications

Senior payroll staff may be part of fully qualified accountants or experienced bookkeepers. A number of financial institutions offer payroll training and qualifications. The Institute of Payroll Professionals offers a wide range of relevant courses.
