What Is A Payroll Specialist?

Payroll specialists can loosely be defined as the individuals who handle the basic payroll funtions such as timekeeping and payroll processing to ensure that employees are paid timely for the hours that they work.

Essentially, payroll specialists process payroll and prepare tax information for an organization or business, but generally do not handle management issues such as developing and manaing disaster recovery, sick pay, and anti-fraud programs (which are normal the pervue of the Payroll Manager).

What Are The Duties Of A Payroll Specialist?

Payroll specialists typically are responsible for collecting and updating employee data such as deductions, benefits, and tax deductions, calculating and reporting regular and overtime wages, and making sure that pay - whether by paper checks, direct deposit, or paycard - is sent out timely.

Payroll specialists must be knowledgable on a wide variety of topics, including wage and hour laws, tax laws, and paperwork and reporting timelines and requirements, as well as how to handle issues such as handling garnishments, travel pay, status changes, multi-state taxation, unclaimed paychecks, and more that arise on a day-to-day basis.

How To Become A Payroll Specialist? What Qualifications Are Needed?

Regarding payroll specialist qualifications, the position is often an entry-level position, so lots of previous experience may be helpful, but not necessary, to landing a job.

That said, those who work in payroll often work on strict deadlines, so you should be able to work under pressure. Be aware, though, that payroll specialists often interact with employees and staff, so should have good people skills - including patience and understanding - as many employees only call the payroll department if they have a problem.
