  • Pay rate based on his/her grade
  • Deductions to be processed before handing out paychecks

  • Calculate the number of hours an employee has worked over a week or a fortnight or a month and multiply it with his/her pay rate to obtain gross pay.
  • To the gross pay, add the overtime pay and deduct taxes, insurances, and benefits. You will have the net pay.
  • Keep a payroll record.
