What do we cover as part of a Systems Review?

Our Systems Review encompasses a thorough examination of how your systems work with your payroll processes. Depending on your needs, this may include Documentation Review, Systems Access Evaluation, Payroll System Efficiency Assessment and a Systems Compliance Check. We ensure accuracy, security, efficiency, compliance, and stakeholder collaboration to optimise your payroll operations effectively.

Documentation Review

During a Documentation Review, we may examine payroll-related documents, including policies, procedures, and reports. Should this step of the Review be requested by your business, we would verify the accuracy and completeness of these documents to ensure that they align with your systems and best practices and regulatory standards. Any discrepancies or gaps identified are documented for further investigation and resolution.

Systems Access Evaluation

The Systems Access Evaluation involves a comprehensive assessment of who has access to your payroll systems and the level of access they possess. We review user permissions, security protocols, and data encryption measures to identify any vulnerabilities or unauthorised access points. Recommendations for enhancing system security are provided based on our findings.

Payroll System Efficiency Assessment

Our Payroll System Efficiency Assessment delves into the intricacies of your payroll systems to identify bottlenecks, redundancies, and inefficiencies. We map out the current system workflow, analyse time-consuming tasks, and pinpoint areas where automation or streamlining could lead to significant improvements. By understanding the system process flow, we can suggest tailored solutions to enhance payroll system efficiency and reduce processing time.

Compliance Check

Ensuring compliance with relevant laws and regulations is paramount in payroll operations. Our Compliance Check involves a detailed review of your systems to confirm adherence to legal requirements, industry standards, and internal policies. We identify any non-compliance issues and provide actionable recommendations to bring your payroll practices in line with regulatory expectations.
