How To Calculate a Payroll Transaction

How do you calculate a payroll transaction?

To calculate a payroll transaction, use the employee specific settings on the panel to the left of the pay check image. These include transaction type, hours worked, salary, pay period, date paid, check number, etc. Some of these settings default to the most commonly used setting or are automatically filled (e.g., salary amount). The numbered parts of the diagram refer to the steps below.

To calculate a payroll transaction:

1. Choose an employee by selecting him or her name on the Home screen’s employee list.

2. Change the transaction type, if necessary.

3. If your employee is an hourly worker, enter the number of hours worked. If his or her pay check include over time hours, enter those, also.

4. Enter the pay period ending date and the date paid.

5. Finally, if you are paying your employee with a check, enter the check number. You can also enter the check number later by navigating to the payroll transaction and entering it directly in the appropriate space in the check image.

6. Click the “Calculate Payroll” Button. View the gross earnings and withholding amounts under the pay check image to the right on the Home screen. The Date Paid and Pay Period Ending dates for the most recent payroll transaction will appear in red.
