Our support lines are extremely busy as a result of the subsidy scheme being administered through payroll. Our Covid-19 help documentation will generally answer your query.

Please also note that all of our staff are working from home and may be answering your call in a sometimes chaotic environment. We appreciate your patience.

The operational phase of the wage subsidy scheme, details of which were announced on 15th April, is effective from 4th May. The software has been upgraded to support this.

Entering Normal Pension Deductions

Click ‘Payroll’ on the menu bar and select the relevant employee’s name in the summary view.


1) Within the ‘Additions & Deductions’ section on the employee’s payslip, click on ‘Add’. Under ‘Deduction’, choose an existing pension from the list or click ‘New Pension Scheme’ to add a new scheme.

 

 

2) The pension scheme will now appear in the ‘Additions & Deductions’ section. Enter your employee’s contribution and if applicable, any employer or additional voluntary contribution. Pension deductions can be applied on a set amount basis or on a percentage basis. To use the percentage basis, simply change the € sign to the % sign and enter the applicable percentage rate.

 

 

3) To add further pensions, click on ‘Add’ again and repeat the process.

4) Should you wish to edit any pensions you have set up, simply click the ‘Edit’ button. Here you will find a facility to set a pension to repeat every pay period until you choose to manually remove it or to repeat up to and including a particular pay period in the future.

5) If you wish to re-order two or more additions/ deductions you have set up, an ‘Ordering’ facility is also available here.

6) If you wish to delete the pension deduction, click ‘Delete’.
