    Checking the correctness of payroll audit

    Methods of payroll calculation at the enterprise need a periodic critical look “from the outside” and verification of the correctness of payroll to assess their compliance with current legislative requirements, which change especially often in this area. It is the frequent updates of standards and the number of nuances that are used in payroll that increase the likelihood of errors.

    Furthermore, when auditing wages, the structure of indicators in financial statements is studied because they should contain complete information about all income paid and accrued to employees.

    Moreover, an important factor in the audit of payroll calculations is reconciliation for discrepancies between accounting registers and primary documentation because if they exist, then this is considered a gross violation. And the main difference between a quality audit and an unscrupulous one is an experienced expert who will not only identify errors but also identify possible causes, as well as give recommendations that will help avoid errors in the future.

    The salary audit is carried out by EBS experts on the territory of the company’s office and on the territory of EBS. EBS experts and a project manager are involved in the implementation of the project, who have significant experience in administering payroll projects, communicating with government agencies, advising on payroll issues, conducting audits, as well as training management and employees of client companies on labor law issues.

    What are the benefits of checking payroll with EBS experts?

    An audit of the correctness of payroll can also be carried out within the company on its own, but there will be no outside view, which can cause oversights in identifying errors and large time costs that can be directed to development issues. In addition, payroll audits are best done with external consultants, simply because they do not review the data again, and therefore treat it more carefully.
