History of Payroll


So, payroll had to come from somewhere. When and where did the beginnings of the payroll system we know today come from? We can take it back to the 14th century. Back in the 14th and 15th centuries, businesses began bookkeeping practices to manage their shops successfully.


They began to track sales, but eventually, this led to tracking business expenses as well! Thus, when tax laws changed over time, businesses were more capable of handling things on behalf of their employees!



Modern Changes


As time went on, the 20th century was the actual turning point for businesses and payroll systems. While payroll wasn’t truly automated yet, many businesses started to outsource their payroll to other companies. But the true expansion of payroll began in the 1980s.


Automated payroll changed everything. The computerized payroll system was important because it reduced the risk of human errors. Therefore, businesses saw significantly fewer errors on their employee payroll, benefits, and business expenses!
