Because every word has its importance, to make it easier for you to define and write the job of Payroll Manager (M/F), we have prepared the main tasks of a Payroll Manager.
In constant contact with the company’s general management and employees, the Payroll Manager is the essential link in guaranteeing a good social climate. You will find below in detail, the main missions that he/she carries out.
Reporting to the Human Resources department or the Accounting/Finance department, the Payroll Manager’s main task is to establish fair payrolls, based on fixed and variable elements, and to apply the company’s salary policy.
To guarantee the effectiveness of his or her tasks, the Payroll Manager must take into account all the information and social indicators linked to absences, illnesses, delays and staff coefficients and levels.
To prepare his or her payroll, he or she benefits from various upstream tools (HRIS, time and absence management system, leave management software, etc.)
The Payroll Manager calculates social charges by drawing up the company’s nominative social declaration (DSN) and pays the contributions to the various funds.
Finally, he/she is responsible for ensuring that labour legislation is properly applied in terms of pay and declarations, and that the company’s social rules and agreements relating to remuneration are applied. He/she monitors changes in legislation, in particular the updating of contribution rates once or twice a year.
The Payroll Manager is sometimes assisted in his mission by Payroll Managers whom he manages.
The job of Payroll Manager requires, above all, a taste for figures, rigour and precision. This explains why some accountants become Payroll Managers.
The Payroll Manager must also develop a real sense of human relations, confidentiality and discretion in the handling of all the administrative files entrusted to him/her.
His or her tasks require him or her to master IT tools, and in particular payroll management software, spreadsheets, and time and absence management software.
In addition to these technical skills, the Payroll Manager must have a good knowledge of labour law in terms of payroll and benefits. In addition to this, he/she must have managerial skills, like any other department manager.
To become a Payroll Manager, it is necessary to have studied management, business administration, economics or law. Access to this position can be gained from a Bac+2 (BTS or DUT). But, above all, it is necessary to have experience as a payroll manager or accountant to aspire to become a manager.
A Payroll Manager after 3 to 5 years of payroll management, starts between 35 k€ and 45 k€ gross per year and aspires to a salary between 55 and 75 k€ after 15 to 20 years of expertise.
This differs according to the size and sector of activity of the company.
It is important not to confuse the salary of a Payroll Manager with that of a Payroll Director for large companies or the Compensation & Benefits Manager or other Payroll SSC whose income can be higher.
The Payroll Manager often evolves in a larger structure, with an increase in the complexity of Payroll, or in a position of Payroll and Personnel Administration Manager, or as a junior Human Resources Manager.
They may also choose to join an HR consultancy or accountancy firm as a Payroll Expert to carry out Payroll Audits, migrate Payroll systems or become a Payroll trainer.
