Processing the pay run

The pay run is processed from the easyemployer payroll report into Payroll Guru.  The flowchart above explains what data is transferred between both systems.

Processing ad-hoc pay runs (e.g. an adjustment) 

You may need to process an ad-hoc pay run directly in Payroll Guru.  An example of this is when an employee is underpaid due to a timesheet error. 

We recommend fixing the data within the easyemployer timesheet first (through the payroll report).  This will then give you the new interpretation (gross wages) which then can be processed directly in Payroll Guru (you cannot export the pay run again as this will send over the whole pay run, not just the adjusted amount). 

NOTE: when processing an ad-hoc pay run, it is very important that the correct process date and period ending is selected.

Multiple bank accounts and net wages disbursements

easyemployer will store the primary bank account for the user and 100% of net wages will be paid into this.  If the user would like to split wages against multiple bank accounts, the additional bank account will need to be created directly in Payroll Guru and a net wages disbursements configured.

easyemployer will store the super fund, USI number and account number for each user.  If you are going to generate a SuperStream file to upload to your clearinghouse, the USI number needs to be set within easyemployer.   

If the user would like to contribute an additional post tax amount to superannuation or salary sacrifice superannuation, this needs to be set directly in Payroll Guru.
