What is Payroll?

Payroll is the process by which employers calculate and distribute compensation (salary or wages) to their employees for the work performed during a specific period, typically a week or a month. The payroll process involves various tasks, including calculating gross wages, deducting taxes and other withholdings, and distributing the net pay to employees.
