To do this go to the Run Payroll section which can be found in the left-hand side column.
You should see the following screen.
To create your first pay run and any subsequent pay runs, click on +New Pay Run.
Enter the pay period, payroll end date and the payment date.
It is important that you make sure that the dates are correct as there is no way to fix these dates once you select "Let's Start!". If you have a payrun that has NOT been submitted to the ATO you will have the option to delete the payrun. For payruns that have already been submitted to the ATO follow this guide on how to resolve this.
When selecting the dates, also keep in mind that the payment date determines what financial year the payment will fall in.
You'll now be in the adjust page.
On this page you can edit the work hours, pay rate and super. You can also add any extra hours, annual leave, sick leave , deductions, allowances and bonuses.
For those who are currently on STP Phase 2, you will also have additional options to add director’s fee, reimbursements, child support, paid parental leave, ancillary/defence leave, and workers compensation.
Once you're happy with it all click 'Next'.
You'll be taken to the Review page.
On this page you can see the totals for this pay run. You are also able to edit the tax and accrued leave amounts.
If you're happy with the pay run, click Submit. Otherwise, click Save Draft to review it later.
