Payroll System is a system where a firm compensates its employees through a processed monetary salary. The firm(s) and/or people offering to do such complicated processing for a certain compensation are said to perform payroll services. Generally, if the firms are small they do the payroll processing themselves, and if the companies are goliaths then they outsource the processing to third party firms.
Generally, when processing payrolls the scope of employees, number of employees, and tax obligations are considered.
