Users can now significantly improve the way they back-pay their employees. Previously, processing a back payment required manually identifying the pay periods that an employee’s pay was subject to a back payment, then manually calculating the back payment needed based on previously paid earnings and then manually calculating the tax associated with such back pay.
To remove the many steps involved in this process, we have recently implemented a new back pay feature that automates many of the current manual processes. Users can now manage the process of back-paying an employee in a simple 3-step process. In addition to automating this process, we have also factored in STP requirements regarding how earnings need to be reported for both the current and prior financial years.
