Who is this course aimed at?

This is essential training for anyone who is responsible for producing payrolls in Guernsey. The course can be bought as any individual e-learning if only one jurisdiction is required. As it is e-learning at a basic level it has potentially CPD/skills expansion for other payroll individuals.

No specific previous experience required – the course covers processing considerations from the ground up. However, a basic understanding of UK payroll would be an advantage.
