Payroll for a shortened pay period

Hi,

 

A new user here again needing some support.  As I will need to run my first payroll this week I am doing some test running to make sure that it all works.

 

My staff are paid based on an annual / monthly salary basis.  The normal payroll cycle is twice monthly, and this has been set up properly (to the best of my knowledge) following MYOB's instructions.  By default, pay is due on the 15th and the 30th / 31st of the month.

 

However - I took over the business only yesterday, so the first pay period will only cover 7th to 15th of December.  

 

Using the payroll assistant, I set the payroll from / to dates correctly (ie 7th and 15th December) on the first screen.  When I click next however, the calculation seems to prepare a payroll run for a full half-month salary.  Being December, I would have expected to have incurred only nine / thirtieths (or thirty-firsts!) of the salary, as only 9 of the first 15 days did the team work for me.

 

I have obviously done or set something up wrong.  Any help would be appreciated as I need to run this in a few days.

 

Thanks,

Ben

Re: Payroll for a shortened pay period

Hi @BenModern

 

When you run a pay run within AccountRight, the figures that appear are drawn off the setup in the employees card and not the date range selected on the pay run itself. So if the employee was setup to be paid twice a month, then a half month salary would load up on the pay run.

 

If you were running the pay for a reduced period then you will need to reduce the amounts and hours accordingly, by overtyping the fields.

Regards,
Neil
