Payroll Processing > Add a Payslip

In some instances, you may need to make an irregular payment or wish to generate the next period’s payslip early – both of these can be done by clicking on Add Payslip at the top of the payslip list on an employee’s profile.

Add Once-Off Payslip

Once-off payslips should be used in cases where special payments need to be made to an employee. The most common examples are payments made on / after termination and maternity leave pay.

To generate the payslip, enter the date on which you will be paying the employee and click Create.

Please note: only once-off items can be added to once-off payslips.

Add Next Regular Payslip

As a general rule, you should not need to add payslips for regular pay periods as the system automatically generates the next payslip when the current one is finalised. However, if you do need to generate the next regular payslip without finalising the current one, you can do so by clicking Create in this box.

Please note: because of the cumulative calculation used, the tax calculated on this newly generated payslip may not be correct until the previous period’s payslip is finalised. We would, therefore, strongly recommend finalising the previous payslip before making any payments / decisions based on this one.
