Payrolls is the process through which Shireburn Indigo Payroll runs the payroll process, working out wages and issuing the payment file which is sent to the bank. To successfully accomplish this, Shireburn Indigo Payroll uses employee and support files and as such, it is very important to ensure all employees have been configured with the correct Support Files.

To get started, from the Payroll tab, click on the "Payrolls" icon.

Here you can view existing payrolls. To set up a new payroll. click on the Insert icon.
