To pre-pay an employee, click into the Payroll utility:

Enter the employee's payments, additions, deductions etc. as required in the pre-pay period:

 4) Pre-Paying more than one period - should you wish to pay an employee or employees more than one pay period in advance, within the pre-pay period, simply click "More" on the menu toolbar, followed again by 'Pre-Pay Following Week/Fortnight/Month/4-Week in this Week/Fortnight/Month/4-Week.. ' and repeat the same process.

5) To finalise your pre-pay periods, return to your current open pay period by selecting this on the schedule bar. A confirmation message will appear to state that that this is a 'pre-paying payslip' and will confirm the future pay periods that will be included on the payslip. Simply click 'Finalise Payslips' to update the current period as well as the pre-pay periods.

 

 

A pre-paid period will be indicated by a clock symbol next to the employee's name:

Any pre-paid period will subsequently be blocked from editing when this pay period is selected in the payroll.
