Demand for payroll professionals in the UK is generally strong. The payroll function is an essential part of any organisation, and as such, there is a consistent need for skilled professionals to manage and process payrolls.
Additionally, changes in legislation and technology have made it increasingly important for companies to ensure that their payroll systems are compliant and up-to-date, which has also driven demand for payroll professionals. Overall, the outlook for payroll professionals in the UK is positive, and employment opportunities in this field are expected to continue to be available.

On average, a payroll professional can earn a salary in the range of £20,000 to £35,000 per year. However, with more experience, the salary can go up to £40,000 or more. Payroll managers and senior payroll professionals can earn £45,000 to £70,000 per year.

Tax and pension management are closely related to payroll as they involve understanding and complying with laws and regulations related to taxes and pensions. Tax management includes understanding and calculating the taxes that must be withheld from employee pay and making payments to the appropriate government agencies.
Pension management involves understanding and complying with laws and regulations related to employee retirement plans and making payments to the appropriate pension funds.

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.
