Paying Salaried Employees in Patriot Software
When you enter a new payroll on Step 1: Payroll Entry, all active salaried employees will appear in the employee list.
Under the “Pay?” column, you will see a switch. The “Pay?” switch automatically turned on to pay the employee. The employee’s flat-dollar salary rate will be included in the payroll. To stop a salaried employee’s regular pay, turn off the “Pay?” switch.
If the salaried employee is assigned an accrual rule to accrue time off, you must enter hours in order to accrue time off. These entered hours won’t affect their pay.
In most states, it is not necessary to enter hours for a salaried employee, but you may choose to do so for tracking purposes. Some states require you to enter hours for salaried employees for tax purposes. The pay for a salaried employee will not change depending on the hours entered. You can, however, enter additional money to be paid in addition to or instead of their regular salary rate.
