Monthly payroll can be done very quickly in just a few steps:

  • Step 1 - Select Employees

  • Step 2 - Select Pay Item

  • Step 3 - View Summary

  • Step 4 - View Month Total

Step 1 - Select Employees

First, navigate to Payroll > Payroll Settings > Process Payment, then follow these steps:

  • Select pay period (e.g. Year, Month, Processing Whole Month Payroll)

  • Select the employees to be paid in this payment batch

  • Select 'Next' to head to the next step in processing payroll


Step 2 - Select Pay Item

Next, we key in all pay items for processing - pay items can be keyed in according to 3 different tabs:

Monthly Payment/Deduction tab - for recurring items that show up each time a new payment is created

Ad Hoc Payment/Deduction tab - for irregular payments that will be reset whenever a new payment is created

Hourly/Daily Attendance tab - to record exact hours or days worked for staff, including overtime

*Note: At any point, you may add or remove employees from a payment if needed.

Naming a payment is also helpful if you intend to create multiple payments in a month.


Step 3 - View Summary

In step 3, you'll be able to view a summary of all the amounts that have been keyed in for your employees so far in payroll. Once everything is in order, you can then proceed to the next step.


Step 4 - View Month Total

The Month Total page is a summary page of the whole month's payments processed.

You can refer to the 'Net Payable' column for the net salary amounts calculated for disbursal to employees for the month. The MPF Summary highlights relevant statutory contributions calculated for your employees as well.
