HR Software with Payroll functionality

HR Software with Payroll functionality

SapphireOne offers an integrated HR software which includes a Payroll functionality enabling any HR team to easily and efficiently process their payrolls and pay employees.



The HR Software component of the entire programme is designed to complement the Financials Mode. If you already use Financials, you will experience that Payroll operates with all the same standards and methods, including the layout of the reports etc. As it is an integrated HR software, the transfer of data from the Payroll functionality to other required areas of the Financials Menu takes place automatically.

SapphireOne Payroll provides a normal Pay Run during each financial period, with all default details set up to go. A Pay Run can be as short as a week, a fortnight, or a month. When necessary, this ‘ready to go’ condition can be quickly altered, either permanently, or temporarily for that Pay Run, without affecting any subsequent Pay Runs. In this way, many easy to use features are available together with quick-change areas for use when required.

The five menus of the Payroll functionality within the HR software are outlined below:

1) Payroll:

  • Access to all regular data activities required during a Pay Run.
  • Permanent & Temporary alterations to employee records.
  • Set up & execute a Payrun.
  • Management of Superannuation settings.
  • Functions to assist in executing Pay Runs.



2) Reports:

  • Access to all reports before during and after a Pay Run.
  • Transaction Reports.
  • PAYG Payment Summaries.
  • Reconciliation Reports.



3) Administration:

  • Main setup area for Payroll.
  • Create and Maintain different items e.g. Employee, Job Projects, Tax Scales etc.
  • Payroll Reports.


4) Roster:

  • Shortcut to Location Inquiry
  • Roster Scheduler Tool



5) History:

  • Inquire about various historical information.
  • Print reports on historical information
  • Estimate leave liabilities for entry to the General Ledger

SapphireOne leverages off the database backend, providing unlimited numbers of concurrent users with real-time access and optimal processing speeds with no data file size restrictions. With our user-friendly ERP system, your employees will be able to extract custom reports with ease. These reports will enhance and improve your daily workflows.

Single Touch Payroll successfully lodged since 1st July 2018

Single Touch Payroll successfully lodged since 1 July 2018
Four of our SapphireOne testimonial clients, Monier Prime Rooftiles, Frutex Australia and Moyle Bendale Timber have processed payruns this week and successfully lodged their first Single Touch Payroll (STP) event for the current financial year. Numerous other clients have also successfully lodged their first STP event with the Australian Taxation Office within the first week of its operation.

The Australian Tax Office has made it mandatory for any business operating with a staff capacity of 20 or more employees to implement a working Single Touch Payroll solution on or before July 1, 2018. SapphireOne was certified for this Single Touch Payroll on 1 May 2018.

To assess whether you need to implement Single Touch Payroll on July 1, 2018 you were required to do a count of your Payroll / HR employees as of 1 April 2018.

If this count is 20 or more, then you are a ‘substantial employer’ and will have to report through STP. If it is 19 or less, then reporting through Single Touch Payroll will be optional until 1 July 2019. After that, it becomes mandatory for every employer to report through STP which is of course subject to changes in the legislation.

As part of the Single Touch Payroll process, the ATO matches the information sent through the portal against the corresponding employer/ employee profiles. As a result, businesses will no longer be required to complete payment summaries at the end of the financial year as it will have already been done and available to employees through myGov.

The following are some important aspects for employers to know regarding the Single Touch Payroll process:

  • A regular pay cycle (pay event) is when an employer carries out payroll at fixed regular intervals to remunerate employees. This is usually weekly, fortnightly, bi-monthly or monthly.
  • When you start reporting through your Single Touch Payroll-enabled solution, your pay event will need to include minimum reporting requirements in order for the ATO to receive the file.
  • The employer must report the year-to-date values of gross salary or wages, allowances or other payments (as relevant), deductions and PAYG withholding for each employee included in each pay event.

If you currently fall into the “Substantial Employer” category and do not yet have a solution that works with STP, contact one of our SapphireOne team to go through your options in finding a resolution to your current systems short comings.
