Advanced Payroll how do I use the new catagory taxable and NIable which is to track furloughed workers pay. Do I use this catagory only when inputting salary figures

Hi anita12, 

 

For the time the employee was able to work before becoming furloughed, you would enter this on the payroll as a separate pay category so that this shows as a separate line on the payslip.

 

You can use the pay category which you usually use for basic pay or create a new pay category for this if you do not have one existing, by going to Payroll settings > Pay categories > Add new.

 

You would then again follow the steps outlined above to add the new pay category as a pensionable item in the pension settings.

 

Thanks

Hi anita12

 

You will have to set up a new category payroll settings > pay categories > add > Enter a name e.g. Furlough > save > in the units field select fixed > select whether you would like to accrue leave > save. > select the employee > pay rates > in the Furlough category enter 80% of the employees usual wage in the rate column and in the units column enter 1 and use the drop down to select per pay run (if you are not paying the employee the other 20% of their usual wage, you don't have to, untick the show in payrun option, if you are leave it as is and then you will amend the amount in the payrun) > save. You will also have to ensure that the new pay category is added to the employee and employer pensionable items payroll settings > pension settings > applicable pay categories > save. Note if you have already created the payrun you may have to delete it and re-run it for the changes to take affect.

Thank you.

Another question;

Having migrated to advance payroll I now need to pay someone their last statutory maternity payment.  

SMP isn't in the drop down (but SSP is).  Do I have to enable SMP somehow or do something to it in payroll settings ?

Thanks for getting back to us, @anita12.

 

Since you migrated to advanced payroll, you will need to select SMP already paid, and ensure that you enter the date you've started paying in the Start Paying SMP date field.

 

Once you have filled in the above information, select Check Eligibility. You will then see if the employee is eligible. The amount of SMP to pay will show in the field under the View log.

 

To learn more about the process, consider checking out this article: Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP) in QuickBooks Online Advanced Payroll.

Hello there, @anita12

 

Thanks for hopping on this thread. You'll need to create an equity or income account for the received furlough grant first, deposit the claims from there. 

 

Here's how: 

 

  1. Go to the Accounting menu, then select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Click the New button.
  3. Choose an account type in the Account Type drop-down list.
  4. From the Detail Type drop-down, select the type that fits best to this transaction.
  5. Give the account name, then click Save and close.

 

Here's an article you can read for more details: Add an account to your chart of accounts in QuickBooks Online.

 

Once done, deposit the claims to the account you've just made. Here's how:

  1. Go to the + New button, then click Bank Deposit.
  2. Select the account you received the amount in the Account field.
  3. Choose a corresponding date in the Date field.
  4. Select the account you set up above from the Account column.
  5. You can wish to enter HMRC from the Received From column.
  6. Simply enter the amount received from the Amount column.
  7. Then click Save and close once done.

 

To make sure your books are accurate, I'd recommend you consult an accountant.
