"What's the pay summary for?"
The pay summary gives you a one page snapshot of a person's pay.
To see a person's pay summary:
- First, select the person on: MenuPeople
- Then click: PayPay summary
- And you'll see a one page summary that estimates all the main numbers of a person's pay.
- The first thing to understand about the pay summary is printing.
- Printing the pay summary gives you a nicely formatted, single page summary, of a person's pay.
- Sometimes a pay summary page can be useful, as an estimate of a person's pay, when you're offering them a job.
- Next down from the top, the big number is the person's gross pay.
- It's shown as a yearly amount, but if you want to see it monthly, click the "per year" link.
- Next is the short explanation on how the person's paid. Again, click any of the links if you want to change some of the settings.
- The main area of the page is the pay numbers.
- When you hover your mouse over some of the numbers, you'll see the segments of the pie charts light up.
- You'll also see explanations of how some of the numbers were calculated.
- And finally, the "Employer taxes" (at the bottom of the page) shows you your additional employer costs, like employer taxes and pensions. The "Employer taxes" section doesn't show for people who don't have payroll admin permissions. It also doesn't show on the print version.
Keep in mind that:
- A person's pay summary can be a useful tool in helping people understand an estimate of their pay. However, it's an estimate only.
- Some pay numbers may work out differently in the day-to-day running of real life payroll.
And that's it! That's everything you need to know about a person's pay summary!
