Setup Payroll (Employer Tab)

This screen is for multiple payrolls only: When you sign up with eNETEmployer Services, your initial account is provided with the first payroll setup and ready to use. The following step should only be used if you are creating a new payroll, over and above your original payroll.

This screen is used to control basic aspects of the payroll such as its name, status and whether it is applicable for calculating and reporting. It also allows you to define an email address for the payroll's representative at your organization.

Common Buttons

Visit the Button Descriptions help page to view detailed descriptions of each button that appears on your screen (whether in the Button Bar at the top of the table, or in the table itself). Note: If a button's text appears in a Grey color, either the command is not applicable to the current screen, or its function has already been applied (e.g. some items can only be added once, therefore the New button will be unavailable on certain screens after it is used).

Sample command buttons


The following section displays help for the various cells and columns shown in the main table on this screen. If you see a help description on this page for a column that does not appear on your screen, you can add the additional column to your view by using the Customize option under the Views button (located at the left side of the screen just above the main table). Refer to the Customize View help page for more help on this feature.


Calculate

Use this cell to specify if the current payroll will be available for batch calculations. Batch calculations can be useful if you have a company that uses more than one payroll and wish to calculate each of the payrolls at the same time. Editing the cell will display a checkbox where you can specify the two available options: Yes (the payroll will be available for batch calculations) or No (the payroll will only be available for single calculations).

Description

Use this cell to enter a brief description for the payroll. This description is for reference purposes only and will not appear elsewhere in the program or on any reports.

Enabled

Use this cell to specify if the current payroll will be active for use. Editing the cell will display a checkbox where you can specify the two available options: Yes (the payroll will be active and available for use) or No (the payroll will be inactive).

Name

Use this cell to enter a name for the payroll. This name is for reference purposes only and will not appear elsewhere in the program or on any reports.

Open

Open - Use this button to activate (open) the current payroll for use. Opening a payroll means that all subsequent data entry and calculations will be based on the active payroll. Any inactive payrolls (i.e. not enabled) will remain closed and unaffected by changes. Choosing the button activates the corresponding payroll and immediately redirects you to the most recent screen you were viewing on the Payroll tab.

Opened

This uneditable cell indicates whether the current payroll is Active (i.e. the currently open payroll) or Inactive (i.e. a closed payroll). Note: Only one payroll can be opened at any given time.

Rep Email

If you are employing the services of eNETEmployer Services to process your payroll, use this cell to enter the email address of your eNETEmployer Services payroll representative. This is useful in two ways; 1) The representative listed here may be contacted if you have any questions or concerns regarding your payroll, and 2) Each time you close a payroll, the eNETEmployer Services person listed here will be sent an email message notifying them of the action. This notification will let the representative know that the payroll is closed and ready for processing.

If you are not using eNETEmployer Services to process your payroll (e.g. you are peforming these services in-house), you can either leave this cell blank or enter the email address of your own company's payroll representative.

Valid email addresses, such as john.smith@example.com are made up of the name, followed by the @ symbol, followed by a domain. The domain part is not case-sensitive, but the name portion may be, depending on the persons email server settings. Underscores and hyphens are permitted, but other special characters (e.g. #, $, !, quotes and spaces) are not.

Reports

Use this cell to specify if the current payroll will be made available for reporting purposes. Some businesses prefer to prevent reports being created from a given payroll due to privacy concerns. Editing the cell will display a checkbox where you can specify the two available options: Yes (reports can be run based on the current payroll) or No (no reports will be available for the current payroll).
