Payroll audits - Why you need one

July 28, 2020


Performing a payroll audit can help reduce the risks associated with payroll errors and non-compliance.

There is a myriad of ways in which your payroll processes could put you in breach of legislative requirements and these could prove to be costly.

What is a payroll audit? 
A payroll audit is effectively an external walk-through of your processes from start to finish to ensure compliance and effectiveness.

Our advice would be that you conduct a payroll audit once a year to confirm your processes are up to date, effective and legally compliant.  

Benefits of conducting a payroll audit: 

  • Reduce the risk of potential fraud
  • Identify manual errors or calculation mistakes 
  • Ensure PAYE is accurate and that you are tax compliant 
  • Confirm you are accounting for leave entitlements correctly
  • Ensure compliance with employment laws 
  • Ensure you are using the most effective payroll software
