Re-defining Schedule of Periods

This utility allows you to re-start your payroll from the beginning of the pay frequency you have selected and to set up a new payment schedule where necessary.

N.B. Redefining a pay frequency will reset all payslips. Any items that you have added to payslips as well as any scheduled future payments and deductions will be lost. THIS ACTION CANNOT BE UNDONE. It is therefore recommended that a backup of the payroll dataset is taken before a pay frequency is re-defined.


To access this utility, click Payroll:

1) Select Redefine Weeks/ Months/ Fortnightly/ 4 Weekly on the menu toolbar.


2) Read the message that appears and type CONFIRM to complete the action:


3) Reset your payment schedule when prompted.

4) Click Continue.
