Payroll Management Process

Payroll Management is one of the important functions since it is pertaining to all the employees in the organization. It’s a very sensitive function even a minor lapse can create a not so good impression about the organization in the minds of the Employees. Further it’s sensitive data so the organization needs to handle it well, maintain confidentiality and that’s the reason most of the organization outsources this function.

Here are the Stages in Payroll Management Process:

1. Compensation Structure:

The designing of compensation structure is key to the Payroll Management, it should consider all the legal regulations, provision of allowances to take advantage of tax benefits and should be efficient enough in terms of administrative management from the organizations perspective. Compensation Structure also has a power to promote organization’s philosophy and core values. For example : if one of the core values of an organization is say Knowledge & Learning, the comp structure should have an allowance built in for Knowledge Site/ Magazine subscription or Reimbursement of Course fee, etc.. built in.

2. Payroll Input :

a) Attendance System: Managing accurate Attendance has become a task for the organisations, thanks to technological innovations have now made jobs easier. There are a lot of Mobile Apps to capture attendance along with the geo tags besides the normal access or punch cards. These systems helps to a larger extent making attendance an auto pilot process

b) Leave Management: Defining the right kind of leave quota and setting process of allocation, recording and approvals becomes a tasks for most large organisations. Keeping track of leaves for all the employees is a task for most larger organisations unless it is automated.

c) New Employees: Setting up a New Employee into the Employee Records and Payroll System is a task unless the organisation has designed a right process for the same. It requires to collect all the Employee information, Personal Details, Bank Account Numbers, PAN and Investment details in time to ensure smooth payroll for New Employee

d) Exits: When the Employee exits the organisation there is a lot of paperwork and process involved. Company needs to ensure all the Leaves eligibility, incentives due, PF, gratuity and other benefits that accrue to Employees are calculated correctly to arrive at Full and Final Settlement of the Employee Compensation. Any mis calculations or errors can leave a bitter experience about the organisation in the minds of employees.

3. Salary Payout and Compliances:

Organisation needs to define the date of Salary payout and accordingly create a process and TAT for each step in the Payroll Process. Ensuring the Salary Payout on the defined date every month creates a huge goodwill in the minds of the Employees and they too can plan their cash flow accordingly. Timely Compliances like PF, ESIC, Provision for Gratuity, etc.. needs to adhere to the date else there can be disallowances of these expenses in Income Tax and additional interest & penalties can be levied.

Payroll Management Process Stages of Finsmart

A payroll manager needs to carefully plan how he will carry out the process stages accurately and efficiently. In addition, there are always tasks requiring extra attention to review payroll data in line with changing tax laws. The payroll management process is split into three brief stages: pre-payroll, actual payroll, and post payroll.

Pre-Payroll Activities

Set Pay Policy:

The net salary or the amount to be paid is affected by many factors. Various company policies such as pay policy, leaves, benefits policy, and more are considered necessary during this stage. As this is just the initial stage, such policies need to be briefly defined. We need to get approved by the management to ensure standard payroll processing.

Collect Payroll Inputs:

This pre payroll process stage involves interacting and gathering information with multiple departments and personnel in the company. The data collected includes information like the mid-year salary revisions, employee attendance data, and more.

In larger organizations, this activity might feel overwhelming since the data might come from various departments. However, it is easier to collect this data from smaller companies. Furthermore, getting data from the more prominent organizations can be solved using multiple innovative and effective payroll management softwares. Those include integrated features, including attendance management, so that the input data collection task does not remain a problem.

Input Validation:

Once the payroll inputs are received, we check how valid the data is and its adherence to the company policies and make sure it is in the correct formats. We also make sure that any employee working in the organization has been missed out and inactive ones are included for salary payment.

Actual Payroll Process

Payroll Calculation:

Once the payroll input data is validated, the information is catered to the payroll system or software to further process the data. The data we get as a result is the Net Salary after adjusting the necessary deductions and other things. Once this process is over, we usually go through the values to avoid any mistakes and keep the data accurate to the highest possible level.

Post-Payroll Process

Statutory Compliance:

Deductions like EPF, TDS, ESI are to be deducted at the payroll processing stage to maintain the Statutory Compliances. The company has to hand over the data to the relevant government organizations. The frequency of sending the data can vary as per the type of dues. Mostly the dues are paid in the form of challans. After paying all the challans, the returns report is filed for PF return and generating ECR.

Payroll Accounting:

Most organizations do recording of all the financial transactions. However, you can also outsource this department to us by outsourcing your bookkeeping services to maintain the books of accounts. Since you outsource the payroll management process to Finsmart solutions, we check that all the salary and reimbursement data is fed accurately in the accounting system.

Salary Payout:

The salary payout can be by any means as per the company’s convenience, be it bank transfer, cheque, or cash. Most of the prominent organizations give their employees salary bank accounts. Upon completion of the payroll, the organization needs to send a salary bank advice statement to us. The salary bank statement has information like employee ID, Bank account number, wages, etc. This process can be shortened by using automatic salary slip generation and distribution softwares.

To facilitate the Salary Payout, we also help organizations where they can transfer the Salary Payout to the Finsmart Salary Account by way of single transfer, and in turn, we do the necessary payouts to the Employees. This saves time and effort of reconciliation at the organization’s end.


Upon completing the payroll run, we provide the finance and higher-level management reports of department-wise employee cost, etc. Also, customized reports like location-wise employee costs can be provided if required. Because you have outsourced your payroll management to us, it becomes our responsibility to analyze the data deeply, extract the required information, and share the necessary reports.

5 Benefits of Outsourcing Payroll Management Services

1. Save on time and cost:

In business, time is money is what they say. Having in-house payroll processing requires much attention to detail. As the demand increases, there comes a need for an increase in staff. By outsourcing the payroll processing to us, you get everything related to payroll, like calculating payroll taxes and statutory filings to handle payroll inquiries. So having outsourced your payroll process, you save a lot of time and cost.

2. Business focus:

Payroll is not one of your business’s core functions, meaning no revenue is generated for your business through this process. By outsourcing a non-core function, you can focus more on your core business functions in your area of expertise and grow your business to the next level.

3. Avoid penalties and stay in compliance:
