It has been designed to handle up o 1,000,000 employees in 100 companies, 1000 departments in each company, and 36 sub-departments in each departments.(TITUS Information System, inc., 2008). A computerized payroll system is typically used by medium to large scale businesses. It saves a lot of time and decreases the chances of generating errors. Of course, as an employer, you wouldnt want to overpay. With this kind of software, you can input all the payroll infos and year-end reporting quickly and accurately. It also achieves payslips and annual reports in case youre going to need them later.(blogspot, 2011). Payroll system reduces employer cost, liability, and administrative burden through integrated solutions. Advantages include: Flexible and comprehensive solutions that organize, integrate, and simplify complex business process. Liability reduction through diligent compliance syystems, support and oversight. Accurate and reliable processing and reporting. Secure data management and transactions. (payroll-us,2003)

The computerized payroll system save time and money, theyre very easy to use and theyre also very practical. There are different types of payroll software systems, with various features, functions or advantages. And of course, the price will also vary according to the type of software. All programs, however, include essential features for storing employee information, files and track records, and will enable unauthorized user to enter, view or change information anytime. Basic features include paycheck processing, direct deposit options, payroll reports, tax reports, deductions, quarterly and annual ware reports, and many others.(EzineArticle,2012). The payroll system allows to record payroll information per employee including payroll deduction & advances. Payroll deduction are tracked for both employee & employer contributions which allows for automated payroll remittances.
