Payroll – what’s coming in 2016?

With the new release of EXO Employer Services just around the corner, we thought we’d give you a heads up on what to expect in 2016. 

Reporting Updates


Previewing Payslips

A new View Payslip button is available when managing employees’ Current and Standard Pays. Clicking this button opens a preview payslip report showing the details of the pay being viewed. A View Payslip button is available on the Current Pay window, on the Standard Pay tab of the Employee Maintenance window, and on the View Hours Paid History window (opened from the Leave Entitlements tab of the Employee Maintenance window)

New Look Reports

The look of all existing EXO Employer Services reports has also been updated with a new font.

Report Distribution Options

Options that determine the default distribution settings for employees, i.e. whether reports should be distributed to them by email, print, and/or MyStaffInfo, are now available in the Standard Settings section of the Setup Payroll window:

Reporting on Physical Pay Date

A new Select Pay Using option has been added to the following reports:

• Allowance History

• Deduction History

• Non-Cash Benefit History

This option lets you report on pays using the Pay Period End Date or Physical Pay Date (previously, these reports always reported on Pay Period End Date).


Updates to the Leave Entitlement Adjustment Utility

Three new columns have been added to the Leave Entitlement Adjustment Utility, displaying employees’ Carry Over, Accrued Taken and Balance values:

Awards and Pay Classes

The Awards and Pay Classes utility, which was previously only available as a special application, is now included in EXO Payroll as a standard utility. Selecting the new Awards and Pay Classes option in the Utilities menu opens the utility, which lets you set up awards and pay classes, then assign them to employees.


NOTE: This is a preview release; as such, these Release Notes should be considered a draft, and may change before the official release
