Having a global payroll checklist provides you with improved visibility, compliance, and consistency. When looking at payroll, there are a number of pain points such as strict processes and regulations, and can be enhanced on a global scale. Other benefits include holding accountability and improved efficiency. Having a checklist that coincides with your company regulations and should cover elements for paying wages is important. This includes, but not limited to, entering and coding regular and overtime hours, making wage adjustments, paying bonuses, commissions, severance pay, salaries and company benefits, such as vacation leave and sick pay.
