Payroll, VAT / Tax training & courses - explore the opportunities


Payroll as an industry is highly dynamic due to the constant changes and updates to its codes of practice. Due to the social nature of employee salaries and the payment of taxes, these codes are derived from government legislation regarding labour, tax and VAT. As the rules of regulations that govern payroll become increasingly comprehensive and complex, payroll practices continue to develop as a valued, technical skill.

Payroll practices are highly regulated according to labour and tax law. For this reason, compliance training is often embedded into payroll training courses. Further, courses are commonly divided according to manual payroll skills or computerised payroll software such as Sage Line 50.

The objective of formal training is to provide the payroll professional with relevant, up-to-date information on the multiple aspects of performing payroll functions. Training courses vary in level from an introductory course for beginners to advanced courses designed for professionals to enhance or brush up on their skills. Likewise, topics also vary between policy such as PAYE and NIC, manual payroll skills and computerised payroll.

As payroll administrator, it is your duty to accurately calculate employee salaries with thorough consideration of wages, exemptions, controls and benefits such as parental, holiday and sick leave.Those involved in payroll administration are also required to have an insight into labour and personal data protection laws and their implications on payroll processes and practice. Since regulations are subject to frequent change, compliance training may be sought out in order to remain current.

Salary Administration is one of the most important and extensive internal functions of an organization. Not only is it commonly a company’s largest expenditure, but employees are also dependent on receiving their pay accurately and in a timely manner. Managing tax is a second critical aspect of salary administration, which requires that you keep up-to-date on the key rates and thresholds for the taxes affecting your employing organization. This includes being well-versed in the possibilities for tax benefits, exemptions, and allowances available to all sorts of businesses depending on industry, size and more. Amongst a number of tax courses, FindCourses also offers a number of International Taxation training courses.

Computerised Payroll

While manual payroll can be efficient in terms of small and some medium-sized companies, computerised payroll is required to reach the scope and complexities associated with practicing payroll in large companies with many employees. By using a sophisticated software, payroll professionals are able to calculate the salaries of hundreds or even thousands of employees accurately and seamlessly. Training courses in payroll software may be general to the overall workings of such software or be specific to a certain application or series. Popular software systems include Sage Accounts, Sage Payroll, Instant Accounts and Instant Payroll.

Accrediting Bodies in Payroll

When choosing an education in payroll, it is wise to consider the accreditation received by that particular course or programme, especially for those looking to begin a career in payroll. Accrediting bodies in the UK include the following: The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP), The Institute of Certifed Bookkeepers (ICB) and the International Association of Bookkeepers (IAB).
