Understand The Concept

There are two broad groups of payroll processing procedures

  • Things you do every pay period.
  • Things not related to a specific pay period.
image Every Pay Period
  • Every pay period you perform the functions circled in yellow, in the order shown.
  • Each item is ticked, and the time and date it was done is noted.
  • The last item, File Regular Pay, confirms the regular pay run and advances the pay date to the next pay period.

image Maintenance
  • The maintenance options are those shown below circled in yellow.
  • Use these options for maintenance functions that are not related to a regular pay run.
  • Clicking any of these options provides a selection of related methods.
  • For example, use Employee to add new employees, pay an employee outside of a regular pay run, etc.
  • Click Reports to produce your IRD returns and all sorts of other reports.
  • Click each of the options, and note the various methods provided.
