Type of salary

Hereafter the setting up of time sheets for the different types of salary are explained .

Fixed salary

The employee receives a fixed monthly salary, which involves a certain number of hours worked and paid vacations.
Take into account that all values, even holidays, are indicated in hours. 

  1. Open the template that has been set up.
  2. In the File menu, use the File and accounting properties command and indicate:
    • Enter the first and last names in the Timesheet in the Header left and Header right sections,  as well as start date and end date and the work percentage. 
    • Enter eventual worked hours to carry forward from previous period in the Start section, hours and/or holidays (always expressed in hours).
    • Enter total hours worked for each day in the Due Hours boxes.
      • Indicate the planned hours for each working day.  
      • Select Working day, Festive or Not a working day for each day of the week.
  3. In the Journal Tab, indicate the number of holiday hours in the initial row of the Holiday column. 
    (Ex. If a person is due 4 weeks of holiday and works 40 hours a week: 40 *  4 = 160).
  4. Insert effective hours worked, or absences (sick leave, holidays) for each day in the Journal tab.
    • The Total column reports the sum of hours.
    • The Due column reports the sum of daily hours. The software will report as per the hours due that are indicated in the Start section of the File and accounting properties command.
    • The Progressive column displays the difference in hours (plus or minus) between hours due and the actual ones.
    • The Total row displays the total number of hours for the period.
    • The Carry forward rows display the number of progressive hours (since the start).

Percentage change during a working year

If the work percentage of working hours is altered during the year, as per 1st of Feb, you can reset those directly in the Journal tab.

New work percentage as per a set date
If for example, Tuesday and Wednesday will only be worked 4 hours per day instead of 8, proceed as follows:

  • Insert the WS code in the Due code column (working day setup).
  • Insert 4 in the Due column.
  • As per that day, the Due column will show 4 hours and for the rest of the year.
  • Punctual change for a few days.
    (Ex. 4 hours worked every day for just one week).
    In the Journal tab, for each day:
    • Insert code DS (sets up day) in the Due code column.
    • Insert 4 in the Due column.
  • Leave of absence:
    If leave is granted for a certain day:
    • Insert code DS (sets up day) in the Due code column.
    • Insert 0 in the Due column.

Adjustment of holiday days

If the assigned holiday hours change during the year, it is necessary to:

  • Insert the number of available hours in plus or minus in the Journal tab, initial row for the month and in the Holiday column. 

Payment of extra work hours

If the employee accumulates extra hours other than those due and they are to be paid, there are two possible ways to reset the Progressive column to zero:

  • Indicate "Payment 10 extra hours" in the Notes column. If the Notes column is not displayed, set it up via the Data menu,  Columns setup ... command.
  • Alternatively insert DS in the Due code column and the number of hours due in the Due column, plus those paid.

Salary per hour

In this case the employee is paid according to actual hours worked.

The employee receives a fixed monthly salary which includes a certain number of hours of work and paid vacations.
It must be taken into account that all values, even holidays, are indicated in hours.

  1. Open the template already set up.
  2. In the File menu, use the File and accounting properties command and indicate::
    • Enter the first and last names in the Timesheet in the Header left and Header right sections,  as well as start date and end date and the work percentage. .
    • Enter eventual worked hours to carry forward from previous period in the Start section, hours and/or holidays (always expressed in hours). 
      • Select Working day, Festive or Not a working day for each day of the week.
  3. In the Journal Tab, indicate the number of actual hours worked or leave of absence (sickness, holidays): 
    • The Total column reports the sum of hours.
    • The Progressive column displays the difference in hours (plus or minus) between hours due and the actual ones.
    • The Total row displays the total number of hours for the period.
    • The Carry forward rows display the number of progressive hours (since the start).

Progressive resetting

If at the beginning of the following month you want to reset the Progressive, in the Start row of the new month, in the Due Code column, you just need to enter RP (= Restart Progressive). This value will restart the Progressive column from zero.
