2a - Sign in to the program:

  1. Sign In to the eNETEmployer website using the credentials that were provided to you when you signed up for the service.

  3. This opens the Employer tab where you must define a series of company-related settings.

    If this is your very first time logging in to the program, you will need to change your password. If you are taking over the management of the payroll from someone else, it is a good idea to change your password as well. Proceed to the next step to learn how to change your password.



2B - Define a secure password for your user account:

For security purposes, the program requires that you enter a new password that is different than the default one that was provided to you when your account was setup.

    The following tutorial will show you how to enter address information for your employees.

    The first step is to choose the Employer tab's <User Name> - Password menu command (if you are not already on this screen). This opens the Password screen where you can enter your new password.

The following step is optional - This step is not required to perform the payroll procedure. If your company has only one physical location, or if you do not wish to use the Locations feature, you can skip this step.

If your company has more than one physical location, you can enter the address and other pertinent details for administrative, reporting or HR purposes.

    The following tutorial will show you how to enter location information for your company.

2H - Define Your Company's Payroll Information:

This step is for multiple payrolls only: When you sign up with Canadian Payroll Systems, 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.

All new payrolls require a number of basic settings before they can be enabled and ready for use. This includes the payroll's name (which will appear in various program areas) and whether the payroll is applicable for calculating and reporting.

    The following tutorial will show you how to enter a new payroll's initial setup information.

2I - Define Your Company's Custom Payroll Status Information: (Optional):

The following step is optional - This step is not required to perform the payroll procedure. If the program's default statuses' suit your needs, or if you do not plan to use the HR feature, then you can skip this step.

All employees are assigned at least one Status setting in the payroll. For active employees, the status is entitled "Active" - for terminated employees, the status is entitled "Terminated". If eNETEmployer's pre-defined status names do not adequately represent your employee's current state of employment, you can create your own custom status.

    The following tutorial will show you how to create a custom status.

    The first step is to choose the Employer tab's Company - Payroll Define Status menu command. This opens the Payroll Define Status screen tat is used to create custom employee Status indicators, over and above eNETEmployer's pre-defined Statuses.

    Show Me How...

    Example: In Fig. 10 below, we have created a custom status entitled "Maternity Leave". If an employee is assigned this custom status, they will be treated with the same settings that are applied to employees who use the pre-set "On Leave" status. Please refer to the Pay Parameters help page for more information on pre-set employee status indicators.

    This completes the custom status information for the payroll. You are now ready to setup your calculation information.



2J - Define Your Company's Payroll Calculation Information:

The following step should only be used if you have multiple payrolls and you wish to calculate them all in one step.

All new payrolls require a number of important settings before they can calculated. This includes the payroll type, along with a start, end and pay date.

    The following tutorial will show you how to enter the calculation information for your initial payroll, and also for multiple payrolls.

    The first step is to choose the Employer tab's Payroll - Calculations menu command. This displays the Calculations screen along with one or more payroll rows in the table.
