# What is a payroll and how is it calculated?

Payroll In a functional accounting sense, "payroll" consists of an employer's activities related to the compensation it pays to its employees (payroll accounting, payroll tax… return preparation, benefits administration). However, the term "payroll" is also used broadly to refer to the dollar amount of an employer's liability for cash wages he must pay to his employees (as in "my company's total annual payroll is $100,000.") In this sense "payroll" refers to the employee compensation expense of a business. Payroll for a given employee is calculated as follows: 1. Start with Gross Pay For a salaried employee, gross pay equals the employee's flat salary per pay period. For an hourly employee, gross pay equals the number of hours worked multiplied by his hourly rate. If the employee works overtime, or has more than one hourly rate, multiply the applicable hours by those special rates. 2. Subtract deductions from gross pay to arrive at the employee's net pay. Some major deductions are: Income taxes - Federal, State and Local, if applicable (also called "withholding taxes") Social Security and Medicare tax Employee contributions to the state's unemployment or worker's compensation fund (if applicable) Deductions for employee benefits (Medical/401(k) plan contributions, etc.) Wage garnishments (often calculated as a percentage of gross salary) 3. After all deductions have been made, the amount left over is the employee's net pay. This process is easily automated, and there are a variety of software packages to handle payroll processing. There are also "widgets" and free websites that can be used in a pinch to calculate employee paychecks. Large companies will usually want to use payroll service bureaus, such as ADP. They can also handle the various payroll tax reporting and deposit requirements, which can be quite complex. There are different models for forecasting future payroll expense, but the simplest way is to multiply expected average headcount for the future period by the current average compensation rate, and then multiply the product by the average percent wage increase to be effective in the future period. But this assumes that the range of salaries is fairly evenly distributed among the current employees, and that future headcount will reflect a similar salary distribution range.

# What portion of the WACC calculation is impacted by the marginal taxes?

The WACC is determined from two separate calculations, one based on the cost of equity and the other on the cost of debt. The 'cost of debt' calculation can take into account …the tax rate. The whole calculation uses five variables, and the tax rate serves to reduce the 'cost of debt' percentage. The bigger the tax rate, the greater the impact on the cost of debt. The lower the tax rate, the smaller the impact. However, as there are five variables in the whole calculation, and the sums, magnitude and significance will differ from company to company, the only way to determine the impact of tax rates (marginal or otherwise) in a particular case is to do comparative calculations of WACC, one with, and the other without the tax rate element. By calculating the difference between the two results, one can determine the precise impact/significance of including/excluding tax considerations when calculating WACC for a particular corporate scenario. In a company with a large cost of debt and a small cost of equity, the effect of the rate of tax (in the WACC calculation) will be higher than that in a company with a high cost of equity and a low cost of debt. In other words, the relative weighting of the 'cost of debt' against the 'cost of equity' is an important influencing element in the WACC computation. N.B. When calculating WACC, the 'after-tax' percentage (i.e. with due allowance for the tax rate,) is generally considered to be a better indicator of the true WACC for a particular company than omitting tax liabilities entirely from the calculations.
