Bringing HR and payroll together for the UAE region: Zoho Payroll for Zoho People

We at Zoho People understand that HR and payroll activities overlap, and that's why we're integrating with Zoho Payroll's UAE version. This strategic integration will make payroll processing more convenient and ensure that both HR and payroll activities operate in perfect harmony. Here are some of the key benefits of this integration:

  • Effortless data transfers

With this integration, data transfers can be automated and simplified. You can map all the key information about your employees like their full name, residential address, employee ID, date of joining, passport information, nationality, designation, department, salary and allowance details, banking information, and working hours in Zoho People that are to be synced to your Zoho Payroll account. This means any updates made to this data will be reflected automatically in your Zoho Payroll account. Similarly, payroll inputs including attendance data, loss of pay data, leave data, and overtime hours can be synced easily between Zoho People and Zoho Payroll too.

  • Error-free payroll calculation

Once you feed all the necessary payroll inputs to your Zoho Payroll system and define the pay date and pay frequency, the system will calculate the net pay of employees. This way, payroll processing is accurate and efficient, and employees are paid on time. You can also have the final pay run approved to ensure that there are no hiccups in the process.

  • Compliance with payroll laws

As a business owner, you have to comply with the Wage Protection System (WPS), and our payroll system helps you maintain compliance with the law. For instance, the WPS requires businesses to pay employees monthly, and Zoho Payroll enables you to customize the pay frequency to match these requirements. Further, according to the WPS, organizations are expected to submit Salary Information Files at the end of each month, and this can be generated using Zoho Payroll once you complete pay runs. Similarly, when you indicate an employee's nationality and if they hail from a GCC country, Zoho Payroll will automatically highlight the appropriate social security options for that specific nationality. This way, you'll be able to take into account the social security regulations of the employee's specific country and ensure that their pension and other benefits are calculated accurately.

  • Access to a self-service portal

With Zoho Payroll, employees get access to a self-service portal through which they can stay on top of their salary-related information without having to look for it in multiple places. They can see their employment information, view and update their personal information, access, and download payslips, view their salary breakdown, stay on top of employer-provided loan information, get a glimpse of their contributions to Social Security Benefits, contact payroll admin, and do other activities from a single system.
