Payroll errors can be very expensive for the company, not just in terms of money but also reputation. Some payroll problems are very common and it is good to have a prior knowledge so they can be avoided. Understanding some of the common issues your in-house payroll department will face is the key to processing payrolls.

Payroll rules and regulations are constantly shifting and have become incredibly complex. Some compliance regulations payroll must adhere to were written more than eighty years ago, while others are as recent as the last Congressional vote. It is critical that payroll not stumble when complying with all of the regulations.

Properly administering an employee’s compensation is not limited to just calculating the hourly rate times the number of hours worked.  From ensuring that the gross wages are correct, through taxation and finally method of payment, every step can be a misstep into the mud and mire of noncompliance.

Which to tax and report and which to just report, or which to not bother about can get you right down that payroll pit.
