Period End Dates

Use this tab to record the period end dates for the payroll year. Be particularly careful with the period end dates of the last period of the old and new tax years, because they describe the start and end of the new tax year.

Click New to record a date. The Period End Date window is displayed. Type the year, period number and date in the fields, and click Save to save the details. You can then use the window to record more dates for the year.

When you process your year end, the system automatically creates a set of payroll periods for the new tax year. You should check them to ensure they are correct. For example, if the new year is a leap year, you must adjust the February payroll period in a monthly template to adjust the end date for February. Click Edit to maintain a selected date.
