This payroll course will cover payroll topics, including payroll legislation, payroll calculations, and entering payroll journal entries.

So if you are aiming to become a Payroll Manager, Payroll Supervisor, or Payroll Administrator, this Payroll online course will help you learn everything you need to know as a Payroll professional in the UK.

The Payroll course provides you with the necessary skills to record financial payroll transactions in manual and computerised environments. This course is beneficial for those who want to work as a payroll administrator or expand their current knowledge and business owners who wish to set up their Payroll.

Paying is not just an upfront bank transfer anymore, especially in larger companies. Several processes are involved to ensure that every employee is paying the correct sum towards taxes, pensions, and national insurance. The Payroll course clarifies how PAYE, NI, and other statutory additions and deductions are calculated.

Our Payroll course's quality is guaranteed. And after completing the course, you will be awarded a certificate of completion for free!

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
