Singapore Payroll Management

Successful payroll management in Singapore requires proper systems and procedures to ensure accuracy and timeliness. Employees expect to be paid accurately and on time each and every pay period.

The main component to accurate payroll is accurate time and attendance. If the data going in for payroll computation is not accurate then the payroll calculations will not be accurate.

What constitutes a complete payroll management system

  2. Up to date HRIS (Human Resources Information System)
  3. Accurate payroll software with up to date tax code data
  4. Online, accurate vacation leave management
  5. Detailed payslips
  6. Bank files and Government reports

What constitutes salary
