Advanced Payroll Scheduling a future pay rate change

This article explains the process of adding a new pay rate to an employee's record and setting the date for when the new rate will apply in the future. Depending on the employee's timesheet/pay settings, the system will automatically apply the new rate in the pay run.

To add a new future rate against an employee:

  1. Select Payroll, and then Employees
  2. Click/Select your employee
  3. Next, select Pay Run Defaults option and click on the Apply from a specified date button
  4. A small window will appear where you can then add the new pay rate and commencement date. The Pay Rate field will be pre-populated with the rate the employee is currently being paid. You override this value by entering the new future rate. 

NOTE: If an employee already has an upcoming rate change, it can be viewed and amended in the same Pay Run Defaults screen. Under the Apply from a specified date button, there will be a link to View upcoming rate changes.
