Understand the technicalities of running a payroll department

Recent changes to payroll procedures have changed the way the Payroll department operates.

Software will handle the technical issues but the payroll manager or supervisor must now plan for timetables and procedures on an ongoing basis.

This course looks at the effects of RTI and auto enrolment on the planning of a payroll operation and provides some practical tools to help you analyse, update and document your new procedures.
