The ways of the old

Payroll is often thought of as just adding up paycheques and distributing them amongst staff, but in reality, it includes much more—like computing variable pay, PF or IT deductions, allowances, and medical insurances. Small businesses create multiple spreadsheets to keep all this data tracked and organized, only to be left with major challenges. Calculations can go wrong, there will be no automations or updates when it comes to tax laws, bulk actions or salary revisions.
