Version 66: Setting Quarterly Payrolls and Reporting Minimum Wage

Version 66: Setting Quarterly Payrolls and Reporting Minimum Wage

Setting Quarterly Payrolls

You can now pay Quarterly. 
  1. Employer Setup: When you create a new Payroll to associate to a Pay Scheme, you can select Quarterly as the Payment Periodicity, which will normally have a payment date on the last day of the quarter. 
    Go to Cintra iQ: Payroll> Payroll Setup> Employer Setup> PAYE & Payrolls tab

  2. Employee/Employer Pension Benefit Contributions: You can now enter a Quarterly Contribution amount when you create a new Employee Contribution or Employer Contribution with a set amount.
    Go to Cintra iQ: Payroll> Payroll Setup> Benefit Schemes> Pension/Other Benefits 

Reporting Minimum Wage

Within Cintra iQ, you can now report on Minimum Wage on a payroll period basis for salaried and time work employees. This is useful if you want to check the following: 
  1. If any salaried employees are being paid below minimum wage due to salary sacrifice or working extra unpaid hours that exceed their contract. 
  2. How any hourly paid employee's rate compares against their minimum wage rate.
  3. How an hourly paid employee's salary sacrifice and unpaid hours are defined within a pay reference period.
  4. How the hourly rate paid for employees performing timed work (i.e. paid by the hour for the actual hours they work) compares against the relevant minimum rate for their age/apprenticeship status. 
Go to Cintra iQ: Payroll> Payroll Tools> Payroll Reports> Minimum Wage Report
