To ensure you pay your employees correctly, you need to set up payments. There are a number of payment types available for you to choose from. You can set up the payments you need to use, edit them or delete them in Payroll.
You can’t delete payments in Payroll. If you don’t want to use a payment in the current pay run, you can remove it when you’re processing an employee’s pay details. To do this, simply click the delete button next to the relevant payment.
