Course Description

A "Taglish" version of learning the basics before computing Philippine Payroll.

Be In The Know : Learn the Basics Affecting Payroll Computation in the Philippines.

In this course, you will learn what the Labor Code of the Philippines is stating about Time-Concepts like Time In – Time Out, Normal Hours of Work, Hours Worked, Factor or Working Days in a Year, Payroll Period, Rest Days, Meal Breaks, Schedule of Holidays and Special Days and many more.


Philippine Payroll 101 Series Courses

Preparing the (Philippine) payroll is an overwhelming task. Not knowing the rules and regulations involving payroll computation results to over or under payment of Employee take home pay. Worst, not complying with the rules and regulations causes penalties for violations and sometimes progresses to Labor arbitration hearing or law suits, which consumes more money, time and energy.

Hence, Philippine Payroll 101 series courses are created with the aim to give employers and employees working knowledge or understanding on various Philippine Rules & Regulations of DOLE, SSS, Phil-Health, Pag-ibig and BIR concerning Payroll Computation.

In Philippine Payroll 101 Series Courses, related topics of similar nature are grouped together and offered as follows:

  1. Philippine Payroll 101 : EE-ER Relations and Payroll System
  2. Philippine Payroll 101 : Time Concepts (What To Know)
  3. Philippine Payroll 101 : EE Earnings and Benefits
  4. Philippine Payroll 101 : EE Deductions and Remittance Dues
  5. Philippine Payroll 101 : Records and Internal Control

These Philippine Payroll 101 courses are independent on its own and interdependent with one another. This way you may choose a course which you think you may need to refresh or reinforce yourself with. However, to better equip yourself, I suggest that you take all the courses one after another so you may have a full picture of the Basics before preparing payroll computation.

Philippine Payroll 101 : Time Concepts (What To Know)

This is the second course of Philippine Payroll 101 series. This course focuses on the Time-Concepts like TITO, Normal Hours of Work, Hours Worked, Factor or Working Days in a Year, Payroll Period, Rest Days, Meal Breaks, Schedule of Holidays and Special Days and many more...


In the Philippines, seminars / trainings offered with similar coverage like this course are mostly conducted in the areas of Metro Manila like Makati, Ortigas or Maynila. You need to be present physically. So, people from nearby provinces, Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao or other places who are interested in attending courses of this nature must travel far by land, air or sea. By taking this course, you avoid the hassle of flying in or sailing or embarking on a long travel going to Metro Manila. Click Take This Course button to enroll.

My initial intention in creating this course is to provide lectures for Filipinos, so, I created this course combining the two major Languages which are mostly used in the Philippines : Filipino and English. Thus, you may be hearing me talking in Taglish (combined Tagalog-English), Tagalog/Filipino and English.
