Creating a manual payslip

Using a manual payslip to pay your employees

There will be times you will need to create a manual payslip such as:

  • When you need a second payslip for the same period ending.
  • If you need to pay out an employee's leave in the same pay period as leave is redeemed.
  • An employee has just started and hasn't completed registration until payday.
  • If you wish to create a backpay.
  • Changing an employee's position to Salaried (auto pay) after paycycles for the period ending have been generated.
  • Creating a pay item for an employee on a trial shift.
