Reckon Payroll App Update v2.18.9
The Reckon Payroll App has received a new update to version v2.18.9 which is now available to download from your app store.
The ability to create pay schedules has been introduced to the Reckon Payroll App!
The pay schedule functionality will allow you to create schedules for pay runs that occur at set frequencies eg. fortnightly, monthly etc and attach employees to them. Its a great way to streamline the pay run process and will automatically keep updating your pay periods and pay dates as you progress.
The Pay schedule functionality is exclusive to the Premium plan in the Payroll App and will allow you access and create pay schedules in both the Payroll App mobile app and web access. If you are currently on the free basic plan and would like to upgrade to Premium, you can do so by tapping the 'Upgrade' button in your app and follow the prompts to subscribe via your app store.
Check out our help guides and how-to video linked below for more info on the Pay Schedule feature in the Reckon Payroll App.
We've just released the highly requested 'Email Report' feature to Reckon Accounts Hosted!

The Email Report can be accessed via the View Email Report option on the Dashboard in Reckon Accounts Hosted.
There is important information on the Email Report feature in particular regarding the various 'result types' that appear in the report in our Help Guide below -
Reckon Payroll App Update v2.12.16
The Reckon Payroll App has received an update to v2.12.16 which is available to download from your app store.
Employee information validation improvements
We've made some much needed improvements to the way employee information is validated when you attempt to create a new employee or complete the profile of an employee migrated from the old STP app.
If you attempt to save an employee profile without full information being completed in each of the tabs, the app will now take you back to the respective tab that requires information. It will also display a message at the top detailing exactly which information is missing that requires your attention.
If you are missing information in more than one tab, the app will take you back to the first tab with missing information. You will also see a red dot symbol on each tab that contains incomplete information.
Check out the screen recording below for an example on how the new process works in the v2.12.16 update. The example shows an incomplete employee profile attempting to be saved but is missing information in two tabs. Upon attempting to save, the Payroll App directs you back to the first tab that requires missing info to be completed. A subsequent attempt at saving the still-incomplete profile then immediately switches to the next tab that requires information. Once entered, the save then completes successfully.

Reckon Payroll App Update v2.12.13

Leave Loading field fixed
The previous v2.12.9 update introduced a bug to the leave loading field in an employee profile where the previous % value would be retained even if the value was removed and saved. This has now been fixed in this new v2.12.3 update.
In-app ability to edit Company Name
You will now be able to edit the company name and legal name in-app for ABN entity. This is particularly useful if you have been contacted by the ATO to do so if there are disparities with how your business name has been registered.
