Import Pay items/updates

We have 35 franchises currently using Accountright that have 2 different awards for payroll. Across both awards, there are 124 payroll categories for FT/PT plus that again for casual. Each pay category has a base rate plus 15 different shift rates. For each award update, each franchise requires each individual pay item to be manually updated. Can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE create an import/export function for pay items.

    Hi keetalee82 , I note that Wage pay categories can be posted to AccountRight files via the API, so it should be possible to develop a process to create the necessary data in Excel and create or update Wage pay categories in all files. All other pay category types are read-only, so can't be created or updated from outside the file. If you would like to discuss this further, please send me an email.

  • We would also like to see improved payroll import options.  We would like to import our Salary Sacrifice amounts under the "deductions" Payroll Category.  Currently we need to manually adjust each pay.
