The accounting process for payroll is the recording of wages, bonuses, and other compensation
paid to employees in a company's books. This information may be used later to calculate and
distribute payroll taxes, such as federal income tax and federal insurance tax.
The first step in the accounting process for payroll is to determine the amount of wages and
other compensation that will be paid to employees for a pay period. This amount may be
calculated based on the number of hours worked by each employee or on the number of
employees working for the company.
After the amount of wages has been determined, the next step is to record this information in an
accounts payable ledger or journal. The amounts will then be debited to an expense account
called a workers compensation expense. The credit will be recorded in an account called wages
payable, which will be credited to a liability account called wages payable.
The final step in the accounting process for payroll is to record any taxes that should be
withheld from employee wages, such as federal income tax or federal insurance tax. These
amounts may be recorded using journal entries or using a separate tax-withholding ledger.
A Payroll Accountant is a person who works within a company or organization and prepares
financial records showing the wages and tax deductions of employees. They may also be
responsible for filing taxes and payments with the government on behalf of the company.
A typical day at work may include:
• Entering employee information and hours worked into an automated system
• Reviewing employee earnings and deductions to ensure they are accurate
• Preparing and filing payroll taxes with the government
• Preparing wage statements, tax liability reports, and other payroll-related documents
• Arranging for payment to employees through direct deposit or check.
Since both accounting and payroll are related to finances, there may be some overlap in their
functions. However, accounting generally refers to the processing of financial information for the
purpose of recording and summarizing transactions. Payroll, on the other hand, refers to the
collection and processing of employee wages and benefits.
The main difference between accounting and payroll is that accounting is focused on the
recording and summarizing of financial information, while payroll is concerned with the collection
and processing of employee wages and benefits. Additionally, accounting is generally
performed by a qualified bookkeeper or accountant, while payroll is typically handled by a
human resources department or third-party service provider.
