It is important for organizations to learn the art and craft of creating a payroll manual

A payroll manual is a very important document for any organization. Obviously, all organizations have to pay their employees; so, it is in their own interest and for their own benefit that they create a payroll manual that accelerates and simplifies the job of making payments.
So, first of all, what is payroll manual? A payroll manual is a single, unified document in which all of the organization’s policies and processes in relation to employee pay are collected and assembled. A payroll manual is a systematic, streamlined and organized document in which those in Finance or others with access to financial documents can carry out payroll functions in a systematic manner without confusions or errors.
There are several benefits an organization has in having a well created payroll manual. These are some of them:
 A payroll manual ensures accuracy in the pay. It is a program into which predetermined values have to be entered. Once these are done correctly, a payroll manual carries out its functions at click of a mouse

 A payroll manual also brings about consistency in the payroll. Making different calculations in the event of a pay raise or change in benefits, making adjustments when an employee leaves and a new employee joins in with a different pay package, or making calculations based on an employee’s particular deductions such as child education or garnishments are all child’s play for a payroll manual

 A payroll manual system that allows access to designated persons can also eliminate a lot of confusion among the staff about policies about pay, since a single document can provide visibility to everyone concerned by being a reference for the disputing employees to see

 A payroll manual also spells out the company policy in relation to payroll. This helps everyone in the loop get a clear idea of what to expect and plan what to do with their pay. A major advantage this kind of document brings about is that it eliminates the need for conflict among peers about what policy is in place.
Having an efficient, well-organized payroll manual is thus in everyone’s interest. An organization has a lot to gain by putting such a payroll manual system in place. Want to learn the most efficient ways of implementing a payroll manual?
