This article compiles Frequently Asked Questions and answers for WFM regarding Reporting in terms of COVID-19 legislation and guidance. A contents page which includes the full series of FAQs from the Webinar on the 31.3.2020, and the Webinar video, is linked at the bottom of this article.
Q - How can we run the reports, i.e. Furlough Status Entered?
We are working on an export that will allow for reporting on the Furlough flag, and the information to help with reporting and what needs to be added into Payroll.
Q - Is it possible for the export report to include NIC for both Employee and Employer and Pension information, Employee % contribution, Employer % contribution etc?
We will hopefully be creating an export that includes employer data – i.e. Furloughed pay, ER NIC and ER minimum AE contributions. The standard Payroll reports have the EE’s and ERs.
Q - What are the best Payroll reports to run get the average weekly earnings for Furloughed employees in the relevant period?
The average pay is being calculated using the 2019 Tax Year basic pay, in line with the guidance. In order to get the details of the same period but the previous year, the Payroll Summary – individual pay period report; the post pay-run preview or the Payroll payments by Pay Basis exports would be useful.
