Share This Post

Versions: 4.37 (4.31-4.37)
Release dates: April 26th, 2023.

This week we’re introducing a few feature improvements and bug fixes. Here are a few of them:

Upgrade to Multi-Salary Functionality

TechlifyHR now allows you to have multiple salaries for an employee in a single month to cover cases where an employee may have had a salary change during the month. TechlifyHR takes care of calculating the income based on the period of work for each salary. 

Holiday Rates on Salary

We now allow you to specify holiday rates, which are then used for the holiday days you defined. 

PAYE e-submission

GRA released an update to the format in April; TechlifyHR is now updated to support this new v3 format which includes changes: 

  • Added a medical column.
  • The client’s address will now remove any new lines.
  • Fixed the issue where employees removed would still be added to the total.
  • PAYE e-submission file can now be accessed from our Payroll View Page, PAYE Aggregation Report, and Form 2A Report.

Training Listing Page Updates

Over the past months, we’ve added a host of new fields to the training form; you’re now able to see this data on the listing page and can now sort, search and filter by these fields.

Net Deductions Tab

On the employee view page, we’ve now renamed “Deductions” to “Net Deductions” for clarity, as these are deductions from the “Net Salary”. For further clarity, we’ve now moved these Net Deductions to their own tab; previously, it was within the Advances/Deductions tab. Advances also have its own tab.

Minor Features and Updates

  2. Employee Search – Now allows searching & filtering of employee numbers.
  3. Overtime – Payslip vertical emails now combine overtime at the same rate.
  4. Republic Bank Export File –  The file will now ignore all 0-value payments.
  5. Payroll Title – On the payroll form, it now shows the character count and the max length for the title; you will not be able to submit the form if the length is more than required.
  6. Financial Summary Report Excel Export – You can now export the Financial Summary Report as an Excel file.
  7. Overtime Breakdown – The breakdown of overtime can now be viewed on Paysheet.
  8. Overtime Rate Breakdown – The breakdown of the overtime by rate can now be viewed on Paysheet.
