Running Payroll

When you have successfully set up your company (including banking information & completed credit application) and your employees, you are now ready to process your payroll. The "Payroll" tab is the default home page for the app, assuming that you have completed the set up or hidden the set up guide.

  1. Select the "Payroll" tab
  2. Choose the "Paygroup" - If you only have one paygroup, it will already be selected as the default option, then click "Next".
  3. Select your "First day of pay cycle", "Last day of pay cycle" & "Pay date" - You only need to set these dates if you are running your payroll for the first time, but going forward, these dates will be determined automatically, then click "Next".
  4. Enter "Hours" for your hourly employees; remember to account for vacation accordingly.
  5. If the information has been entered correctly, click "Yes" for "Ok to Pay" and click "Next".
  6. Check "Salary" for your salaried employees; you can also enter hours against these employees and account for their vacation as well.
  7. If the information has been entered correctly, click "Yes" for "Ok to Pay" and click "Process".
  8. You can now "View" the details of each employee to make sure that all the information is correct, including checking to make sure that all your employees have been accounted for in the payroll. 
  9. Be sure to tick the check box confirming that you have properly reviewed all numbers and details for all employees and that your payroll is approved and ready for final processing.
  10. Click "Approve" and your payroll processing is now complete.
