Entering YTD Payroll balances in Reckon One, when migrating from another software.
ID: 5598 Category: Reckon One Status: Resolved Views: 336


Question:

How to enter the opening YTD payroll balances to setup employees, in Reckon One Payroll?

I have just moved to Reckon One from another software, how can I enter the YTD setup for the employees with their Pays, leaves and PAYG tax etc.



Solution:

When you choose to migrate Reckon One Payroll partway through the year, you will have to choose whether to redo all those pays, you have done so far on another system, again in Reckon One or to enter those pays as YTD balances and move on. This is done so you can produce one single payment summary at the end of the year.

Redoing all those pays can become cumbersome if there are lots of employees and lots of pays to do. Hence entering the YTD Payroll balances could be the easy and better option.

YTD Setup will allow users to enter the Year to date amounts for pays to appear in Payslips, Payment Summaries, leave accumulation and PAYG tax withheld etc.

Users may be required to do entry on both Pays and/or Payment summaries tab, depending on their individual needs as explained below

1) YTD entry done under Pays tab will appear only under Payslips and not in the payment summaries.

2) YTD setup done under Payment summaries tab will only appear under payment summaries but not in the pay slips. Therefore, if you wish to show the YTD amount in the payslips as well as on the payment summaries, you will have to do the YTD setup on both Pays tab and Payment Summaries tab.

3) YTD setup done for Tax appears both in Payment summaries and on Payslips.

4) YTD Setup for Leave will appear under payslips. This will also be included in the 'Leave balances and accrual Value' report.

Consequently, users may be required to do YTD setup under all tabs to correctly reflect the Payslips and Payment summaries.

Entering YTD Setup Pays:

1) Go to Cog Wheel icon on top right of the page and Settings.

2) Navigate to Payroll Settings and YTD Set up

3) Go to Pays tab and click on Add Pays button.

4) Click on Add new row.

5) Enter the Employee, appropriate Pay item, date, amounts etc

6) Enter the Reference as appropriate.

7) Add new Row, should you wish to enter the pays under different pay items or for another employee.

8) Save and close.
