My client is interested in having a payroll program developed. I was considering designing the program but I would be welcome to receive quotations from developers who may already have a similar project designed so as to save me time and possibly costs.
Neither my client nor I are located in the United States so the taxing system within the payroll program should be flexible for my client to make relevant changes to the tax rate or to change the name of the type of taxation to suit our country. We also have a National Insurance percentage that must also be factored in when doing payroll. The program should be flexible enough to include these and to allow me to add any additional tax types that may be introduced by our government.
Additionally, I would like to have the rights to be able to modify certain aspects of the program as necessary to accommodate for any changes in the client's business or in taxation.
In my plans to develop the application, I was considering using an Access platform since a payroll program is basically a customized database. However, I am open to other solutions.
I would also like to state that costs will determine the success of the bidding process and my decision to outsource the project, as expected.
