Pay Selected Companies is a feature only available in the Payroll Specialist version of the software.
Using Payroll Specialist you can pay multiple companies in one go, as long as the employees within each company have already had their pay-rate set with an annual salaried amount or a default hourly rate. So long as these default values are filled out and correct you will be able to use the ‘Pay Selected Companies’ feature.
Paying Selected Companies
To pay selected companies, go into ‘Company’ > ‘Pay Selected Companies’
If you want to select all companies down the left hand side then click ‘Select All’. You can select one company by clicking on them with the mouse and also select multiple companies by holding down the ‘CTRL’ key on your keyboard and using the mouse to click on the company names you want to select.
You can also select companies to pay by company sections using the ‘Section’ drop down box. If you have created and separated companies by sections then you can use this pay selected companies to pay all companies within a section. Sections can only be created in Payroll Bureau/Specialist. More notes on company sections can be seen in the following section of the manual.
When paying selected companies, you pay via ‘Pay Frequency’, which means you can pay anyone within these companies on that pay frequency.
- Select the ‘Pay Frequency’ required
- Under ‘Pay Period’ select the ‘Start’ and ‘End’ periods. You can pay multiple weeks using the start and end periods
- If you want to exclude any employees you’ve marked as being ‘On-Hold’ in ‘Employee’ > ‘Employee Maintenance’ > ‘Personal’ tick the ‘Exclude on Hold’ tick box
- Select the ‘Action’ as ‘Pay All’ firstly to pay all selected employees and then you can this again by selecting ‘Close All’ to close all the employees.
