In [Payroll] > [Pay Run], we can see 2 types of pay run.

One-time pay run: a supplement to normal pay run, which can be paid to one or more employees. For example, pay bonuses in advance, calculate salaries for employees who are about to resign etc.

Normal pay run: it can be combined with the employee's basic salary, variable pay items, attendance data, holiday payment, etc. to carry out normal payment.

One-time pay run

The process is similar as Add New Pay Run. Employee under your selected Payroll Policy will be added into One-time Pay Run.

Payroll Policy: The payroll policy that need to calculate

Pay Cycle: The period that need to calculate

Reason: Final pay/One-off payment/New employees pay/Others

Step 2 If any staff information is missing, click on Add in the top right. When you finish, the system will recalculate automatically.

Step 3 Confirm the payment, and then Submit
