How Do I Process a Pay?


To process a pay or pay run in Lightning Payroll, click on the Pays button at the top of the Lightning Payroll window.


When you click on the Pays button, you will be taken to the current or most recent pay run. If you want to go back to an earlier pay run, you can click Last Pay Run on the left. To go to future pay runs, click Next Pay Run on the right.


When processing a pay run, all pays are initially marked as Pending until they're either saved, or marked as complete.


To get started, you can click the Edit Pays button above the list of employees to edit the pays in order. Otherwise, you can click Edit Pay beside any employee's name on the right to edit that individual pay entry.


Once you have begun to edit a pay entry for an employee, you will be able to enter their hours worked for the pay period on the top left in the Hours section.


If you need to pay leave to an employee, you can add this in the Leave taken in this pay section. Click here to find out more on how to pay leave.


Tax and Super amounts are calculated automatically and are shown on the right.


Once you are happy with the employee's pay entry, click Save and Next on the bottom right to save and progress to the next employee or click Save and Close to go back to the pay run.


Once all the pay entries for your employees are marked as Complete, you will then be able to create the payslips and process Single Touch Payroll for this pay run.
