Calculation Review

Use this cell to specify if eNETEmployer will display the Calculation Review report immediately after each payroll calculation. Editing the cell will display a checkbox where you can specify the two available options: Yes (display the report after the payroll is calculated) or No (do not display the report). Note: If the No option is chosen, you can still create the report manually via the Review button on the Calculations screen.

Max Gross Difference

Use this cell to specify a change in salary (based on a percentage) that if breached, will be displayed on the Calculation Review report. This can be used to flag staff payments that increase or decrease by abnormal amounts (either through data entry error, or via a change in employee work hours).

Max Net Amt.

Use this cell to specify an amount, that if breached by a single cheque or EFT, will cause the program to provide you with a warning of the exceeded maximum payment. This is used as a safeguard in order to avoid erroneous pay calculations that could result from a mistyped character/value or other data entry error. For example, if 80.00 hours was mistakenly entered as 800.00, an error message would appear indicating this employee's calculated cheque would exceed the maximum limit that was entered in this field.

Pay Period

Use this cell to specify the number of times that regular (Normal) payrolls will be calculated each year. It is each company's responsibility to determine their pay period frequency at the time the payroll is created. These values will be used when the program calculates income tax, CPP/QPP, etc. The pay periods are listed by name, followed by the number of times the pay will occur in a calendar year. The available options include:
