Important Information about Timetables
This is the deadline for any paperwork to be e-mailed over to the Bureau in order to be processed in the current Payroll. The Paperwork deadline includes any notification documentation for Maternity/Paternity/Adoption/Shared Parental Leave and Court Orders.
This is the deadline for any data to be submitted for processing in the current Payroll. This includes all Rota/Tronc submissions via the portal and any additional upload amendments emailed to the Bureau.
Once the Payroll is closed, the Payroll approval is the final Payroll confirmation and will generate and send the FPS file to HMRC. If Fourth send BACS on your behalf, approving the Payroll will immediately generate and submit the BACS file and no further adjustments can be processed.
Payment & Deduction Types
Please take this opportunity to review the setup of the Payment and Deduction Types within the portal. There is an export available within HR & Payroll which will provide a comprehensive list of the configuration of the Payment Types within the system to assist with this review.
This export can be found using the following pathway within the Payroll module:
- Payroll > Reports > Exports > Payment Types
If any changes need to be made to the Payment or Deduction Types within the system, please advise your Payroll Specialist of this along with your timetable confirmation.
If further information is required on this process, please contact your Payroll Specialist for assistance.
