Pitman Training Centres in Ireland are delighted to announce the release of their new Payroll training course, which provides a thorough introduction to Payroll Principles in the Manual Section, and in the Computerised Section you create real life payroll scenarios using Sage Micropay software. With the many changes that take place, having up to date Payroll processing experience remains an essential skill that’s in demand with nearly every employer. If you wish to understand and be able to effectively handle the payroll processes in an organisation, this training course is your perfect starting point.
The Manual Payroll Procedures section of the course includes details about the latest changes, tax credits and the Standard Rate Cut-Off Point (SRCOP), calculation of statutory deductions, the difference between joint and single assessment, the payroll ledger and statutory tax returns. You will learn about the latest Tax (PAYE) rules and be introduced to the range of forms that are used, such as P45, P46, P2C, P35 and P60, in order to comply with regulations. This Manual section of the Payroll course ensures that you can confidently progress to Computerised Payroll, applying your new payroll skills to the popular payroll software, Sage Micropay.
In the Computerised section the lessons include getting started using Sage Micropay, logging in to a payroll, setting up basic company details, accessing Micropay Help, setting hourly rates and payments, viewing employee details, creating employee records, navigating employee records, backing up data, and closing the Sage Micropay program. You will then progress to restoring payroll data, editing employee details, using a report to verify employee details, set a pay calendar for the tax year, and processing the payroll as well as producing a variety of payroll reports.
There are extensive consolidation exercises in both sections, so that you can build on your aptitude for figures and develop your knowledge of Payroll to give you an invaluable skill. This course is designed for flexible learning – so you can fit it around your life and progress at your own pace. If the need arises, our course advisors will also be on hand to provide expert help whenever you need it and you'll keep your workbook as a handy reference guide.
What's more, you'll always have the invaluable Pitman Training name on your CV. And if you’re looking for a career in Book-keeping or HR, you should definitely consider our Book-keeping Diploma or the Pitman Training Advanced Accounts Diploma, both of which provide essential skills for working in Accounts and Finance.
