Understanding Payroll


PAYE

The long name is Pay As You Earn – this will appear on your employees payslip as PAYE. This deduction is a form of tax that is administered through companies. They are the ones responsible for deducting this monthly tax from employees’ earnings, which is payable to SARS. It is the employer’s responsibility to register for PAYE with SARS on behalf of the employee, this is normally handled by the person handling your payroll.

UIF

The Unemployment Insurance Fund is a relief scheme that provides short-term benefits to contributors that are unemployed after being recently terminated, or unable to work because of something like maternity leave, for example. UIF contributions, like PAYE are deducted monthly from employees remuneration.
Employees are only exempt from paying UIF if:
The employees work less than 24 hours a month
They are the President or any other government official
They are independent contractors

Workmen’s Compensation

Workmen’s Compensation is an annual requirement of The Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act. The scheme is designed to help employers avoid large, unexpected payouts and medical bills for injuries acquired while employees are on duty. As an employer you are obligated to apply for Workmen’s Compensation, if you have more than one employee.
Each year companies are assessed and pay fees based on employees earnings and the risks associated with their duties. Fees are subject to change based on increases of decreases in claims and there is the possibility of rebates for decreases in costs.
Cooperation with Workmen’s Compensation earns you a certificate of good standing, which some customers (especially in cases Tender applications) require to do business with you.


The Payroll Function

Payroll is a fundamental business function of any business with employees, it is the process that allows these employees to get paid either weekly (wages) or monthly (salaries). Although, on the surface it may appear to be a very straight forward job description, the payroll function is highly specialised and can be quite complex.
Payroll involves:
  • Capturing payroll data

  • Balancing & reconciling this data

  • Preparing tax reports

  • Processing deductions and benefits

  • Record keeping & reporting

  • Preparing payslips

  • Processing leave, benefits & incentives

  • Costings for new employee packages & amendments of existing packages

The list can go on, this is why your payroll professional should be certified, thorough and up-to-date with the relevant legislation, including tax law to ensure 100% compliance.
The treatment of certain benefits is constantly changing and it can be difficult to stay on top of these things as a business owner with so many other things on the go.
