Extra Pays (or extra emoluments) are lump sum payments made to an employee and include bonuses, commissions, backpay, retiring or redundancy payments.

The IRD specifies a very complicated formula for the taxing of these lump sum payments. Ace Payroll automates the tax calculation according to this formula.

To pay an extra pay
  1. From the front screen click Calculate Pays and select an employee, then click Options > Extra Pays.

  2. Select the type of extra pay then click Next.

  3. Enter the amount of the extra payment, select whether the payment should be included in the employee's gross earnings for the calculation of Holiday Pay rates, then click Next.

  4. The Confirm Tax Calculation window opens, and the correct rate is automatically ticked. If you need to change this rate, select a rate.

  5. Click Next.

  6. Select Gross Amount or Nett Payment, then click Next.

  7. Click Confirm, and you are done.
