Paying your employees should be an ease, not a burden! With Breathe processing a pay run is as easy as 1, and 2. Literally! Simply follow our 2-step process to pay your employees!

Go to Apps Menu > Payroll:

Note: If you haven't yet set up Breathe payroll, please refer to Breathe Payroll Quick Start Guide to learn what you need to do to get Breathe payroll up and running.

When you reach the Payroll Dashboard, you'll be guided by the steps under Process Payrun.

Step 1 - Data input

This is where you would capture the time worked and any additional earnings and/or deductions for your employees

Under Step 1 - Data Input, click Enter payroll:

From the left hand navigation bar, select the person you want to process the pay run for (you can use the search box).

Click Add pay item:

Select the pay element from the drop-down menu, enter/confirm the number of hours and the rate per hour, and optionally a description, then click save:

Note: If you wish for the normal hours to be assigned automatically to an employee (e.g full 38 hours for your full-time employee) you simply need to select yes for the pay to process each pay period.

You can add more pay items by clicking Add pay item, and you can view the payslip by clicking View Payslip at the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

Recalculate recalculates the employee's pay. This is not a commonly-used button, as the pay is recalculated as and when a new pay item is added.

Add all the time worked and/or any other earnings and deductions for all your employees, then go back to the Payroll Dashboard to proceed to the next step.
