The payroll software is written on excel spreadsheets providing a record of employee details, calculating the income tax and national insurance contributions. Payslips produced plus automatically completes the HMRC PAYE tax forms to save employers time.

General features and use[edit]

Small businesses use QuickBooks for most financially-related business processes, from entering sales receipts, tracking expenses, preparing and sending invoices, sales tax tracking and payment, preparation of basic financial statements and reports, purchase order processing, and inventory management. The program does not include MICR line printing, but does include check printing and options for employee payroll and time tracking. For most tasks, QuickBooks doesn't require users to understand standard accounting procedures, including double-entry bookkeeping. Most transactions are recorded using on-line screens that closely resemble paper based forms such as invoices or checks.
