    Pastel Partner Payroll - how do you account for a change in hourly rate mid way through the month?

    Is there anyway that you can have more than one rate set up per employee and for the month where the rate went up, use both rates in one period?

    You will need to setup a customised transaction (eg 1002 Hourly Wage) and link it to template 5002 Hourly Wage. Ensure that you select the correct calculation totals and Shifts worked (if applicable) - copy exactly what is under existing transaction 5002 (Normally RTI, UIF income, OID, LNSP BCEA ER CLI etc). Add that transaction to his payslip and change the rate on the default tab (multiply standard full hours for the month by the new rate to get the amount to input), then enter his actual hours worked after the rate change on the income tab. If you have customised formulas that draw off 5002 only, they would need to be changed as well.

    The alternative would be to manually calculate the total earnings, tick the override option on 5002 on the income tab of his payslip and enter that amount. The system will work out an average rate for his hours for the month. Next month, change the amount of the default tab to the new rate and remove the override on his income tab. (Simpler, but not truly correct)
