Step 3: Finalising your pay period

Once your payroll for the period is complete, you are ready to update your payslips. To do this go to Process Icon number 5 or Payslips > Update Payslips The date of the latest RPN file imported and the date it was imported into the software will be displayed on the screen. Your last updated pay period will be shown, this is not able to be changed, and the payroll period that you are about to process is also shown.

The software will automatically update the period number for you. It will be the next consecutive pay period; you are unable to change this number. If you wish, you can change the pay date that has automatically been brought forward. For weekly payroll users, you can add a reference on your employee’s payslips to indicate the pay period they are being paid for. Click Update to prepare the files for processing. Once files have been successfully prepared for updating. Click OK. This will now update your payroll for all employees for the period.
