A payroll is commonly used to refer a company's records of its employees' salaries and wages, bonuses, and withheld taxes or the company's department that calculates and pays these. From an accounting perspective, payroll is crucial because payroll and payroll taxes considerably affect the net income of most companies and because they are subject to laws and regulations (e.g. in the US, payroll is subject to federal, state, and local regulations).
