Additional Customization: Payment Dates

Three weeks ago we released this blog post announcing that you can now edit payment dates for payslips per employee on the employee’s profile, as well as in bulk. This feature lay the ground work for us to develop further customization to payment dates, giving you more flexibility in specifying when the payment for an employee occurs.

We are happy to announce that this further customization is now available. The changes are as follows:

  • For fixed payment dates, you can now specify whether the date specified refers to the previous month (i.e. payment is made in advance), the current month or the next month (i.e. payment is made in arrears).
  • For relative payment dates, you can specify how many days the payment is processed before or after the payslip date.

The payment date options are dependent on the type of pay frequency:

  • Monthly and twice monthly pay frequencies have the option to use either fixed payment dates or relative payment dates.
  • Pay frequencies that are weekly or every two weeks make use of relative payment dates.

More information about pay frequencies and payment dates can be read on this help article.

Just another way that we continue to ensure that you get payroll that simply works!
