An automated Director's Fee payment can be created using an Extra Earnings Rule.

In this example we are setting up a employee to receive a flat $1000 weekly payment as a Director's Fee

Navigate to Menu > Settings > Payroll rules > Extra Rules, click the Create New Rule button to configure the allowance.

Key values to configure:

  • Title: This will be the Payslip title of the allowance. For example "Director's Fee".
  • Type: Select "Fixed".
  • Employee/Group: Select who is eligible for this allowance. For example, "John Smith"
  • Value: Enter the amount to be paid. For example "1000".
  • Classification: Select "Bonus".
  • STP Category: Select "Gross".
