Pay Dates and Multiple Pay Frequencies

  • In Ace Payroll you can use multiple pay frequencies. Each of these frequencies are processed as different pay runs.
  • In other words, you process your weekly pays and file them, and this does not affect your fortnightly pays - they are completely separate.
  • Each time you do your fortnightly pays, you need to file them as well.
  • Filing the pays for one frequency does not file the pays for the other frequency.

  • To change the current pay frequency, firstly click over the frequency and date button.

  • Next click on the currently showing frequency on the frequency and dates dialog.

  • Then select the frequency required, click GO to close this dialog, and OK to close the frequency and dates dialog shown in step 2.

  • Note the dialog in step 3 only shows frequencies that are being used by your employees.
  • In other words, before selecting for example a monthly pay date, you must have at least one employee being paid monthly.
