Payroll means total salary of an employee. When we pay the net salary to any employee, we make the his or her payroll. Payroll record is necessary because it is the main expense of company. There are many liabilities like TDS, EPF and ESI which are related to payroll. So, it is made with full of care because we have to adjust total deductions from the salary in this. We also record all these items with following journal entries.

1. Pass the journal entry when salary is due.

TDS Payable Credit

Labour welfare fund Payable Credit

Loan to Employee Credit

Salary Advance to Employee Credit

2. Pass the journal entry of the payment of salary.

Now understand the above journal entry

Basic salary and allowance are the salary expense which go to salary payable and which is paid to employee at the time of payment of salary. EPF, EPS and ESI contribution will be transferred to their payable fund accounts. Because all these contribution is also expense, so we have debited the contribution in these funds. Before transferring to salary payable account, we deduct the TDS and transfer to TDS payable account. So, TDS payable account will be credited.

You should understand the meaning of above payroll items.

1. EPF = Employees provident fund.
