Creating a Base Rate with a Fixed Amount

I wish to create standard Base Rate Payroll Items per level.

By creating one Payroll Item with a Fixed hourly rate, and using this for all employees on this level, I would only need to update the Payroll Item, instead of every employee's Base Rate. Reckon Hosted does not seem to provide for this?

Any suggestion?

Hi Willem

" ... By creating one Payroll Item with a Fixed hourly rate, and using this for all employees on this level, I would only need to update the Payroll Item, instead of every employee's Base Rate..."

It's the rate amount that is updated, rather than the "Payroll Item" itself.

The same Payroll Item (eg "Hourly Pay") can be used in each Employee's record with their specific rate.  The program will then use the rate you've set for that particular employee each time you process a Pay for them.

Alternatively, you could create a separate Payroll Item for each Level but the system will still prompt you to add it to the Employee's record the first time you process a Pay for them using it.

I was hoping there is a way around this. It takes up a lot of time updating individual records during the July annual award increases.
