Employee earning opening balances | Payroll Web Platform

Overview

When transitioning from another payroll provider to Employment Hero's payroll platform, you may have employees that have existing Year to Date (YTD) earning amounts. It is important to transfer these earning amounts over to make sure your employees have the correct financial records. 

The Opening Balances Earnings feature allows you to select an employee file and enter their accrued YTD earning amounts. You can also use this feature to clear the opening balances if you entered the wrong YTD figures into their employee file. To view more information, please see our Hero Academy training video on Opening Balances here.

Important

Earnings are the year-to-date gross values for the financial year specified. We will allocate earnings to the employee's primary location (set via the employee's Pay Run defaults page) at the time you enter the data into the platform.
