The Level 1 Award in Payroll for Business qualification aims to provide learners with a comprehensive range of knowledge and the practical skills that they will be able to use as a payroll processor for a variety of businesses.

Learners successfully completing the qualification will have a knowledge and understanding of the services, advice and guidance that can be offered to businesses by HMRC, NICO and other payroll agencies i.e. pension providers. They will also have the skills required to prepare, check and use source documents from which the payroll is processed using computerised payroll systems as required under Real Time Information requirements.

As learners progress through the course of study they will develop skills that will enable them to gather the required information in order to prepare an employee payroll record using commercially available payroll software. They will further acquire the skills necessary to calculate the gross pay due to employees from a range of information sources and for a variety of pay periods. The learner will be able to process the payroll accurately producing the net pay due to the employee and updating all internal payroll records.
