    Hi,

    Do you have ANY payroll experience ? I am not talking about reading in books or anything like that ? I mean have you worked on Payroll in a business environment ? Have you got any business experience ? Do you know the basics of Payroll ?

    I am sorry and I hate to be the one to burst your bubble but books are not going to help you if you dont have a basic working knowledge of Payroll. How it works and how it comes together with all the other modules like FI/CO etc. There are also legislative issue that are involved like Social Insurances and taxes and if you dont have a basic knowledge of these the books may just confuse you .

    Sorry to sound so negative but Payroll is not a module that can only be learnt from a book.
