When running payroll, there may be a situation where you don’t want to adjust an employee’s original payslip but you would like to add an extra amount for that pay period.
This is called a ‘Second Payment‘ and is a simple action to process within the Qtac payroll software.
The second payment option will only be available when you have processed and closed an employee for the relevant pay-period. If you have moved on to the next pay-period you cannot carry out a second payment for an earlier period. You can only process it for the period the employee is currently closed at.
To access the second payment option, locate the employee in the employee list on the main payroll home-screen. Then right click and choose ‘Employee’ > ‘Second Payment’ from the list of options.
The ‘Second Payment’ feature allows you to run another payment for an employee in a pay period that you have already run and closed. After running a second payment for an employee, the payslip for that period will show the second payment independently of any basic pay amounts. The tax and NIC will be recalculated with the new and existing amounts both taken into consideration and any monies already paid will be deducted.
