I would like to have Payroll system set out that such that:
if you are using weekly PAYS,
that there be 52 PAYS allocated
and each becomes individually PAID / REFERENCED as egPAY35/00W
and reach pay is directly referenced on the bank statement as to which pay period it relates to, any extra pays are referred to as to the pay period they are correcting ( I reference SAY PAY35/75W) PAY35
and this person should be able to find that he has been paid eg 75 payments from us because in each pay he get one directed to his savings account and one directed to his cheque account and others have been directed to paying his accounts to some one else. All PAY35 should add up to the weekly wages, all the pays numbers to an individual should be identifiable on ours and their bank statements. If and employee says he is short paid it should be easy to identify when and how that came about .
It is also easier for employees to collate 52 PAY Slips If that is how they are identified .
Someone who has started working part way through the year may have a PAY35/01W
and some one who skipped a PAY may get PAY35/01W and PAY37/02W
OR Monthly Set up for 12 or 13 pays per year PAY01/01M
This also clearly defines which Financial year and PAYE periods you are going to allocate each PAY to.
