Background of the study
Processing payroll can be one of the most complex tasks facing an organization. Aside from simply paying employees, companies will need to file taxes, submit reports and process year-end data for tax-reporting purposes. These problems are being encountered by several organizations. The manual payroll system they are currently using calculates the payroll for each pay period entirely on paper. They will need to calculate taxes, over time, under time and any other applicable deductions and additions to each employee’s actual earnings. The problem with the manual payroll system is if ever one had committed mistakes, whatever input was made from the start will automatically affect the whole calculations, and it will probably consume a lot of time to repeat the whole process again.
In addition, there is high possibility that there will be mistakes when processing payroll manually. For example, when one had calculated a wrong amount of tax to be deducted and the result is higher than the supposed total salary, it can be very costly and a big problem of the business
Overview of the Current State of technology
Manual computation of salaries given to the employees, deductions and withholding taxes, are some of the stressful works the system currently implements. These works are very critical and costly to the employer or owner of the company due to errors brought by wrong computation of salaries, the “cheating machine” which is the Time Clock, and also the calculation of the net pay the employee shall receive t\for his work reduced by the amount that she should pay for tax together with the SSS and Pag-Ibig. The manual payroll system cc calculated the payroll for each pay period entirely on paper. They will need to calculate taxes, over time, under time and any other applicable deductions and additions to each employee’s actual earnings. The problem with the manual payroll system is if ever one had committed mistakes, whatever input was made from the start will automatically affect the whole calculations, and it will probably consume a lot of time to repeat the whole process again.
The current solution being implemented by most companies with regards to manual computation is still unidentified or unchanged. They still stick to manual computation with the application of double, and maybe triple checking of its computation to make sure that their computation is accurate and precise to prevent doubtful costs and losses.
As people all know, having the bundy clock as the source of data is not trustworthy. Anyone can “time-in” an absent employee if he/she wants to or absent employee asked his co-employee which is not supposed to be-right salary the employee should receive. It’s just like...
