Payroll is a FETAC/QQI level 5 course that is designed to give participants the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain payroll records both manually and on a computer in a small to medium sized organisation. Students will learn how to process a weekly payroll with all its additions, deductions and tax implications as well as weekly reports and pay slips. They will also develop an understanding of all revenue entitlements available to the PAYE worker and will learn how to submit statutory documentation such as P45, P60, P30 and P35. Participants will become familiar with the Thesaurus software package, which is used by more than 50,000 companies across Ireland and the UK.
