A business essential. A must for the team.
An effective payroll process involves a robust system that is compliant with payroll laws and labour laws as well. Here are some of the benefits of a complete Payroll Management system:
Under the Income Tax Act, every salaried individual is liable to pay taxes as prescribed by the State and Central governments depending on the salary and exemption limit. A payroll software avoids mismanagement of taxes that could leave workers paying penalties. It also takes care of all the compliance and statutory requirements which helps the company in filing taxes easily.
Usually, payroll software is designed to integrate the existing accounting system. This helps organisations save time and money on calculating large amounts of data. Also, a few advanced versions have the provision to forecast and plan budgets for what companies spend on each employee.
Every individual’s compensation, including salary, incentives and bonuses are included in the payroll system. This makes it easier for companies to evaluate employee performance at the time of appraisal and determine compensation.
A company must ensure to maintain adherence to all the country’s tax obligations and labour compliances like TDS, ITR, ESI, PF, etc. This enhances an organization’s reputation as a stable employer and also helps in increasing the brand proposition.

Statutory deductions are P IT (income tax), EPF (employee provident fund), TDS (tax deducted at source), ESI (Employees’ State Insurance) which are deducted according to the individual’s annual compensation and the state legislations.
An allowance is a fixed sum that a company may decide to pay its employees to cover additional expenses. For example travel allowance, overtime allowance, medical allowance, etc. All financial benefits that employer offers under the head “salaries” are taxable. Certain allowances are partially or fully exempted. Reimbursements are the amounts that a company pays back to its employees who may incur business-related expenses. For instance, many companies provide medical reimbursements where employees can claim the amount by presenting appropriate bills and proof of expenditure.
Our payroll system is well-secured, and guarantees to protect your company data and employee information. With a robust security system in place, we do not compromise on the security of bank account numbers, addresses, pay rates, and other details required to process the payroll and tax forms.
Payroll management can be outsourced, managed on our own or through software. But it is best when outsourced as it is cost-effective and saves time and money. Not to mention, the opportunity to closely work with the payroll specialists and financial experts who are well versed on the latest tax rules and compliances.
Some of the common benefits that companies offer are medical reimbursements, health insurance, paid vacations, leave encashment programmes, wellness program fundings, etc. However, the statutory benefits as mandated by law are earned leaves; social security like ESI, PF, pensions, group insurance policies, maternity benefits; payment of gratuity, etc. These benefits differ depending upon the type of company and the state where it is located.
Managing accounting, payroll, tax and other financial responsibilities is very tedious and complex, especially more so if your business is a start-up venture. Hence, by outsourcing payroll process, you can save time and money; be assured of accuracy in calculation and deductions; get expert guidance from payroll specialists, and accounting and financial professionals.
