Managing Outsourced Payrolls in United Arab Emirates

Managing Payroll in Nigeria

Nigeria now has the largest economy in the continent of Africa. With 212 million people, and projected to overtake the USA in terms of population by 2050 this vibrant, frenetic nation is certainly a tempting market. Rich in oil and gas, and with a rapidly growing middle class there are plenty of reasons for your company to be present in Nigeria. If you employ people there you will have to run a local payroll. Outsourcing the payroll function may seem the best solution, but the company remains legally liable for any mistakes the outsource partner may make. It is therefore important that the end client is aware of what the major tasks are the outsourcer performs on their behalf, the key deadlines that they need to sign off, and how to interpret key reports and payslip information. This half day course focuses on the major payroll rules in Nigeria.

Attendees will be able to accurately follow a simple pay calculation, and should be able to identify all of the key items on a payslip. You will also be able to:

  • Identify all key jurisdiction deadlines
  • Understand the penalty regimes and the consequences of getting it wrong
