Use this window to view the system messages created during the Calculation process for the selected employee.

The messages give a step-by-step listing of how the payroll calculation used the data held against the employee to create the net payment. It lists the calculations used to determine the tax paid, the NI contributions for the employee and the employer, pension contributions and the overrides that might have been applied.

This facility is of particular use in the early stages of an implementation when variations between payroll systems cannot be qualified. The stages, and more importantly the data elements used in those stages, are described and often highlight the differences responsible for the variance.
