Setup Initial Rates of pay

All employees are set up within the Employees menu in the same manner. 

At employee level the frequency of pay is selected, from this BrightPay will recognise which frequency of pay is required for the employer.

In addition to the pay frequency enter the rate to be applied to the first payslip at this initial employee setup stage.



This will be applied to the first payslip.


While the rate of pay for the first payslip is applied from the employee payment record, it is available to amend with the payroll first payslip, prior to finalising.



Once the first payslip is finalised the pay from the previous payslip is copied forward, i.e. subsequent payslips do not take the rate of pay from the employee payment record, it is taken from the previous payslip.
