Shireburn Indigo Payroll does not require an End of Year process - This means there will be no closing off for previous years and all data can still be easily accessed.

Shireburn will take care to update your Indigo Payroll with the new rates applicable for the new payroll year.

Be sure to check out other important new year processes in the links at the bottom of this article.

What you need to do

Our recommendation is to switch to the new payroll year by following these five steps:

1. Select the Payroll tab and click on Settings.

2. Click on Payroll in the left side menu.

3. In the new left side bar, click on General Settings.

The current year is listed and the "New Payroll Year" button is available next to it.

Once this is pressed, the system will switch the year to the next one (This is done by incrementing the current year by 1).

4. Click the New Payroll Year button.

5. Select Yes in the box that comes up.

You are now set to start working on payrolls for the new year! The switch performs the following actions:

  • The employee list will be filtered by active this year - Toggle the filters to show all employees by following the instructions here.

  • The leave transaction screen will only show leave related to the new year - This view can also be toggled to show all leave, using system filters as in the point above.

  • Payrolls now show rolls for the new year, hence should be blank - This view can also be toggled and you can still check and re-print old payslips and FS5s.

Warning: Do not create staff employees starting in the new year before you switch. This is due to the auto-allocation of pro-rata leave.
