Payroll Processing : Dubai Perspective

UAE in general and Dubai, in particular, is referred to as the oasis in the middle east. With a GDP size of half a trillion dollars, the country is growing strong at over 3.5% per annum. The Dubai Expo 2020 is going to be another major boost for the local economy.
The strong growth has also brought in many businesses to set up in Dubai. The Dubai government is one of the business-friendliest countries in the world.  With no income tax, payroll processing is comparatively much simpler than other countries.  But it is an administrative task and requires dedicated resources depending upon the size of your company in Dubai.
A cost-effective solution is to outsource the activity to a specialist payroll processor that can execute the task faster and usually at a fraction of a cost you take to execute internally.

But, what is payroll processing?

In the simplest term, payroll processing refers to the management of the salary/wage system of the employees. Under this service, the pay of an employee is calculated over a selected period of time by utilizing the information like timings, benefits, earned leaves, over time, holidays, etc. The management can be sometimes quite complex which naturally then involves a high cost for the company.
