What is a payroll course?

Payroll is one of the most important functions of a business as it ensures employees are paid accurately and on time.

Those who take on a payroll course gain the skills to effectively manage a business’ payroll process, no matter the scale. This includes learning how to use Sage (a popular payroll software), how to conduct a manual payroll and the legalities surrounding employee payment.

What are payroll qualifications and certifications?

Whether you are new to accountancy or want to expand your skills within a money management role, payroll qualifications help to enhance your career prospects in the finance industry.

All our payroll training and online payroll courses have the added benefit of being CPD-accredited, meaning you earn valuable CPD points (a respected certification of self-development) to prospective employers. Perseverance pays off, too; the longer the payroll training course, the more CPD points you stand to earn.
