Since the introduction of PAYE Modernisation, a dedicated facility is available within Thesaurus Payroll Manager in order to facilitate corrections that may be needed from time to time to your payroll.
The Corrections utility can be accessed by clicking on 'Corrections' on the menu bar:
The correction type 'Payment was different' as highlighted above is to be used where, in relation to a pay run previously processed, it turns out an employee was physically paid an amount different to what was processed in the payroll.
To perform this type of correction:
This will open the 'Payment was different' utility.
On the left hand side, the selected employee's original payment amount and the associated deductions will be displayed on screen.
a) If entering a net figure, click Calculate Net to Gross
b) If entering a gross figure, click Calculate Gross to Net
c) Alternatively, press function key F10 on your keyboard to edit individual pay items instead
The software will now determine the applicable deductions based on the corrected pay amount entered.
Please note: the payment amount displayed is before any allowable deductions are deducted (e.g. staff loan repayments) and before any non taxable payments are added (e.g. expense reimbursements).
Please note: where further corrections are made for other employees in a pay period in which a correction PSR has been created but not yet submitted to Revenue, the pending correction PSR will be updated accordingly to include the additional employee corrections processed.
If, however, a previously created correction PSR has already been submitted to Revenue, a new correction PSR will be created accordingly.
Also, where a payment correction is needed for more than one pay period for an employee, individual correction PSRs will be created for each applicable pay period, which can subsequently be submitted one by one to revenue through 'PSRs > Control Panel'.
