About

Overview

Prepare students for career success with first-hand experience in calculating payroll, completing payroll taxes, and preparing payroll records and reports. The 2016 edition of Bieg/Toland's market-leading text addresses the latest laws for payroll accounting. Students focus on applications, rather than theory with hands-on practice to reinforce concepts. Numerous examples and real business applications demonstrate relevance, while an extensive payroll project lets students practice all they've learned, either manually or using Cengage Learning's General Ledger Software (CLGL). This 2016 edition also covers topics on the Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC) given by the American Payroll Association. CengageNOWv2™ course management and online homework tool is also available with robust instructor resources to help you easily present today's payroll laws and practices to prepare students for success.

Features and Benefits

  • CengageNOW™ PROVIDES A POWERFUL COURSE MANAGEMENT AND ONLINE HOMEWORK TOOL. End-of-chapter matching quizzes, conceptually focused questions for review, problem sets A and B, and Continuing Problems from the book are integrated into CengageNOW™, Blueprint Problems teach students fundamental concepts, while Animated Activities uses illustrative video to explain how payroll concepts related to everyday business. A variety of study tools help students learn more efficiently. A proven Test Bank, Achievement Tests, and Cengage Learning General Ledger (CLGL) are also included.
  • CENGAGE LEARNING'S GENERAL LEDGER (CLGL) PROVIDES HANDS-ON PRACTICE IN AUTOMATED PAYROLL ACCOUNTING. Available online to accompany each new book, CLGL gives your students practical experience in using software to solve this edition's Comprehensive Payroll Project in Appendix A. This online, educational general ledger package is very similar to leading accounting software currently used in business today. The significant difference between this educational package and a commercial accounting software is the simplicity of operation.
  • THE WASHINGTON UPDATE ADVISES STUDENTS OF TAX CODE AND TAX LAWS USED IN THE CURRENT EDITION. Because tax code, tables and laws are frequently changed by Congress after a book has been printed, this resource shows students how they can find out the most current tax code, tables, and laws--both now and in future practice.
  • "OVER THE LINE" ACTUAL BUSINESS ETHICS CASES PROVIDE SITUATIONS FOR STUDENTS TO DISCUSS AND ANALYZE. These actual, intriguing Ethics Cases illustrate situations where companies either intentionally or unintentionally crossed the boundaries of fairness in their interpretation of payroll laws.
  • MICROSOFT® EXCEL SPREADSHEET TEMPLATES PROVIDE ADDITIONAL PRACTICE IN SOLVING PROBLEMS. Students can use this leading software tool to complete Continuing Payroll Problems, the Comprehensive Payroll Project, and other end-of-chapter problems that are clearly identified with an icon in the book. Appendix B, written by the authors, provides detailed instructions on how to prepare Excel spreadsheets most effectively.
