Back pay

Hi 

 

I am paying an employee back pay from the beginning of 2017 so I have set up a back pay code to do this and then I have gone into tax overide to adjust tax. Do I adjust the weeks here to 40 

I also want to pay their ordinary hours in this pay but as I have used tax overide and adjusted for back pay it is taking the ordinary pay at the higher rate.

How should I be processing this?

 

Thanks

Re: Back pay

Hi @MarionJean.

 

Welcome back to the forum and I hope you find this resourceful.

 

There are three steps involved to  process back pay

 

Payroll will not automatically calculate back pay as there are too many variables. If you need to pay an employee back pay, you'll need to determine the back pay amount, create a back pay code, then process the back pay. I understand you have already created a back pay code and please look through this help page for step by step guidelines to process back pay.

 

Let me know how you go as we are happy to help further.Smiley Happy

Re: Back pay

Hi

 

Thanks for that.  I now need to pay ordinary pay within the same pay run.  Im not sure if the tax overide on back pay will only tax the back pay or if the ordinary pay tax amount will be affected. Also with the back pay and tax overide do I adjust the weeks?

 

Thanks

Marion

Re: Back pay

Hi @MarionJean,

 

Thanks for coming back to clarify your doubts.

 

Sure, as per our conversation, you can process the payrun as normal. The tax override is only going to affect the "Extra Pay Amount" with the Tax code that you have entered and not for the other amounts. You will not be changing the weeks as you will be processing the pay as normal. 

 

Hope this helps! Should there be anything please do not hesitate to let us know We are happy to help! Smiley Happy
