Payroll List Records

HR manager has access to payroll records for the employees under their organisation. From the payroll list page, HR Managers can view a list of records, and run payroll manually. If the organisation has set the payroll date on the HR Settings (opens new window) page, the system will execute payroll automatically. If the date is not set, the HR manager must manually run payroll.

# Payroll Run

When you "run" payroll, the following actions will take place.

  • Individual payslips will be created for each employee based on the payroll records that you have entered in their file (salary, deductions, etc.)
  • Employee leave credits will be added to their leave accounts, based on the numbers entered in the HR settings page. If no values have been entered, no credit will be granted. For example if an employee had 12 days of personal leave, and your HR settings specify 1,5 monthly leave credit - 1,5 will be added to their available leave days when payroll is run.
  • A new company expense will be created under the Finance App - for expenses. Of you do not have the Finance app, no further action will be taken.
  • Employees will receive an email telling them that their payslips are available and they can download them on their personal page.


Before running payroll, ensure that the payroll salary amounts, deductions, tax rates are correct.
