Frequently Asked Questions about Payments and Rates

Where are Payment and Rates Summarised?

The Payments/Rates form summarises all payments and pay rates that are applicable to the employee. If payments are being set up via the employee’s post, those payments will also be summarised on this form. 
Go to Cintra iQEmployment Record> Forms> Payments/Rates
If you have already entered a Spine Point ID (from the Post History form) you will see this salary displayed.

Where does the payment and rates information come from?

Within the Allowances and Rates Summary tab, Cintra iQ displays the post's title and well as the payments related to the post.

How do I amend payments related to an employee's spine point and post?

In order to make changes to payments related to an employee's spine point and post, return to the employee's Post History form and update accordingly. Go to Cintra iQ: Employment Record> Forms> Post History

How do I add other standard payments?

You can add other standard payments through the Set Up Individual Allowances and Rates tab. Highlight the desired Allowance and right-click: New in the rates pane. Fill in the information and save. 
As these adjustments are ALL date driven, then you may have an adjustment that is not standard every period but you know in advance the rates and from and to dates. These can be entered here too.

How do I add adjustments to a new starter?

The Set Up Individual Allowances and Rates tab will only show allowances currently applicable to this employee – so will be blank for a New Starter. For more information about how to add adjustments, see How Do I Add Adjustments to a New Starter?

How do I calculate and display standard pay period hours on the payslip?

You can pay a standard number of hours to an employee and have the calculated rate automatically derived from a function. For more information, see How Do I Calculate and Display Pay Period Hours on Payslips?
