To be able to do work more easier.
To create fast and easy access in processing the records.
This research is made to aid individuals and the Pacific Nickel Philippines Inc. which is undertaking a time consuming manual process to meet their regulatory requirements and to provide a basis for the initial approaches include in processes of the whole system. It also ensure that it will provide sufficient information for regulatory consultation and decision. The objectives of this research are as follows:
Maintain accurate records of employee salaries and wages earned and paid,taxes withheld and other voluntary deductions.
To improve the existing system’s services, in order to increase employee and employee satisfaction , provide the quality and create a controlled information management and environment. This would be the primary soured for information about the workings of the proposed payroll system of the Pacific Nickel Philippines Inc. This is design to ensure uniformity and consistency in data collection.
To find out what is the salary history of an employee.
To develop a system that will eliminate the problem of insufficient and incomplete information.

The proponents develop a system for Pacific Nickel Philippines Inc. to make their transactions more reliable and easy to use. The new system will manage employee’s salaries/wages in a safe and efficient manner. To give accurate processing of paychecks and keep and keep accurate management records. This system would directly benefit the following:
Manager – The system will help the manager to save a lot of manual work, allowing them to devote more time to other tasks. He is the one in-charge in managing the whole process of the payroll system. Pacific Nickel Philippines Inc. the system will help in saving company’s time in processing payroll and eliminates unnecessary paper works and filing.
Accounting Head – They can rely on the system to compute most of their calculations. Employee- the system helps the employee in receiving their wages in time and accurate manner; the employee will be able to ask the employer for a record of their income
Scope and Limitations
The researcher study focus on designing a payroll system for a Pacific Nickel Philippines Inc. The system study was conducted during the second semester of the SY 2011 -2011 and on the first semester of SY 2011-2013.The system is designed for the enhancement or development of computerized payroll system. Functionalities:
The system can compute the wages of each employee.
The system can keep track of hours, withholding taxes and other deductions.
It can add, edit, delete and search employee records.
The system can update employee’s information as well as the weekly salary, cash advance, and the rate per day and overtime.

The system will operate 24 hours but transactions are only allowed during officehours.
The head administrator will be the only one who can manipulate all the records.
It has log-in and log-out process for security purposes.
Review of Related literature
The payroll system is used to maintain a list of employee’s name, addresses, and employment information and is used to interactively calculate and print payroll checks employee’s hours are entered and distributed to appropriate department/cost centers. Annualized ax able are then used to automatically compute deductions before the check is printed on the bank stock. Monthly and quarterly reports aroused to prepare tax filings, and provide analytical information. W- 2’s can be guaranteed automatically at year

You can enter payroll payment information quicker than with a manual system, and run payroll register’s o double -check your information before printing the checks.
In this chapter is all about hoe the proposed system study being planned and designed. This also tackles with the gathering procedures, analysis of the data, research design, instruments being used.
The proponents gathered important data that will help developed the system process into a consistent and reliable flow of information. The data’s and information’s we gathered will certainly supports the system process of our proposed study. The proponents also undergo observations, descriptions of the behavior of the study we conducted for our system process. We also have graphical representations which show how the system process functions.
Conceptual Framework of the Study
Nowadays, technology is highly needed by many companies in order to make certain task in a fast and easy way and manual process should be dominated. As we proposed a system which is entitled the Pacific Nickel Philippines Inc. a system that provides financial records, calculations, and information of every employee. For a better understanding about the flow of our study conducted, we made a schematic diagram that comprises of three boxes. The first box is the input which shows the whole information of a certain employee including its financial records, allowances, and other deductions. The second box which shows the software applications, tools, and diagrams that necessary in developing the proposed system. The third box which is the output that result of input and process of the system study that we proposed which is the Pacific Nickel Philippines Inc. payroll system.
