Payroll Fundamentals 1 FIN 9016


Our Payroll Fundamentals 1 course teaches you how to apply payroll legislation and calculate all components of individual pay (from remuneration, through deductions, to net pay) for both regular and irregular situations. Get the knowledge and skills you need to effectively communicate all aspects of the individual pay calculation process to both internal and external stakeholders. In addition, learn to accurately complete records of employment.
