Problem

When you click on the maternity pay (SMP), paternity pay(SPP) or adoption pay(SAP) buttons you get a message:

The (Monthly/weekly/2-weekly/4-weekly) work periods have not been defined in the Payroll Calendar.

Resolution

You need to tell the system what period of work is covered for the pay dates selected. You will only need to do this once.

This helps the system more accurately pay statutory payments in the correct period.

To set:

• Go to “Company” > “Payroll Calendar“.
• Click “Next” until you see the pay frequency in use. You will see empty columns under work period start and end date.
work period on the payroll calendar
• On the first pay period (it doesn’t matter if it’s already been finalised) click into the start date and record the work period start date. 
• eg. Monthly Payroll: Paid on the last day on the month for work done in the calendar month would show:  Pay Date: 30/04/2015; Work Period Start date: 01/04/2015; Work period end date: 30/04/2015:
work period completed on payroll calendar
• Once you fill in the start date the system will automatically complete the rest of the fields.
• Click “finish
• You will now be able to go in and set up statutory payments.
