Problem

An issue has come to light in the latest version of IRIS payroll Professional & Earnie (v1.31.43) whereby if an employee who is receiving car benefits is processed as a 're-run' (after having already had variations for the period processed) the car benefit value could be set incorrectly.


This issue is scheduled for correction in a future release, please see below for details on working around the issue. 

Resolution

Please Note: This issue only affects Car Benefit notional payments as indicated by the "Car Benefit" checkbox on the payment settings. Normally these would have been configured and allocated to an employee using the option "Company" | "Configure Company Car Details "



Example:


On the 1st payroll run for the employee, car benefit values are processed correctly:



If a user returns to reprocess this employee (designated by the text RERUN at the top of the variations form) the car benefit values are now incorrect:



If the "Process" button is clicked at this point the wrong car benefit values will be ran against the employee.


Preventing the issue


In order to prevent this issue from occurring, if you are reprocessing an employee who is receiving car benefit make sure you undo their payroll for the period before reprocessing their variations.


Alternatively, you can click "Revert" down the right-hand side of the pay variations form to restore the employee to the defaults as set in their employee details.
