AccountRight Plus and Premier, Australia only
To pay an employee, all their details need to be entered into an employee card in AccountRight. This includes who they are and what they'll be paid.
There are 2 ways to add an employee into AccountRight:
Your plan may limit the number of employees you can pay each month. Learn about payroll limits and fees.
Enter the employee’s name and contact details.
There isn't a field for the employee's middle name. However, if you enter a space and the middle name after the first name, the middle name will print correctly in payslips and paycheques.
If you want to see a middle name field added to cards, or if there's any other changes you'd like to see, vote for or submit ideas to the AccountRight Idea Exchange.
(Optional) If you want to assign a code to identify the employee, enter one in the Card ID field.
To enter personal information about the employee, click the Card Details tab. In this tab, you can:
add a picture—see Card pictures.
Complete setting up the employee by entering their payroll information.
Will the employee use AccountRight?
If you’re setting up an employee who will also be using AccountRight to work on your company file, you’ll need to give them access.
Once you've manually created an employee's card, you can enter the employee's payroll information. If you sent the employee a self-onboarding request, find out how to finish setting them up.
If you're new to AccountRight, make sure you've finished setting up payroll. You're then ready to pay your employees!
