If it's your first payrun for the financial year, double check the number of runs that are expected for the year is correct.

Microkeeper will predict how many runs are likely based on your payment date in arrears value.


Starting calculations

When you begin your Payrun, the timesheet data is converted into payroll data.

All the rules you have created are applied in relation to the timesheet data including overtime penalties, unpaid breaks etc.

Employee entitlements which include personal leave, annual leave, long service leave and/or rostered days off are calculated and accrued.

Super is calculated based on the employee's settings.

Tax is deducted using the current tax tables.

Amendments
