Payroll Services

Payroll is a commonly outsourced business activity, enabling companies to free up resources and focus on adding value to the business. With a vast experience in managing payroll and a long history of providing accurate and economical web-based payroll services, PwC is well equipped to handle all facets of a client’s payroll process including bank transfers, accounting entries and reporting, tax and superannuation withholding and remittances, and monthly and annual compliance.
