T is a system every company uses to calculate the salary of each employee.
There are several criteria to cater for..
Some companies pay daily,some weekly some monthly and few yearly.
some pay bonus others don't , every company has its own over time system so the py role has to cater for that as well per employee.
it also have to take in account taxation if deducted by the company (paye) any perks those are either deductible or subsidized such as hotel expenses, company cars , business trips paid by the companey or otherwise.
It also has to keep record of employee details so that correct salary is paid to correct employee. etc.
And not to mention that the information is also used by the company accounts department.

The pay role system is unique to each company
