We understand the importance of capturing payroll correctly. Many clients spend countless hours downloading and reviewing the PDF draft payslips for employees before finalising them. We thought that there has to be a better way to review payslip information in bulk! Introducing our new and improved bulk finalisation page.
This newly improved page allows you to use various toggles to show or hide additional payslip information so that you can focus on the information and figures that you want to see, whether this is simply the nett pay for each employee or more detailed information like payslip inputs or payslip values. The recent activity for payslips is now more clearly laid out, which is particularly useful to review if your payroll is prepared by multiple users.
For more information on the various aspects of this page, please refer to our help page here.
Just another way that the SimplePay team is working to improve payroll for you!

Happy new year! We hope that 2021 brings you new opportunities, improved performance and overall success in all your endeavours. As always, we’ll support you with an efficient and effective payroll system. We’re kicking off the new year with a brand new feature – you can now assign leave policies to employees in bulk.
SimplePay’s leave functionality allows you to set a company default leave policy for all employees that are added to the system. You can then assign a different leave policy to employees if they are not on the default policy. Being able to assign leave policies now in bulk saves you time if you have many employees who are not on the company default policy. It is also useful for companies who do not have a single company default policy, but rather separate policies per pay point or pay frequency.
Once you have created your leave policies, you can assign them in bulk as follows:
- Go to Employees > Bulk Actions
- Click on Entitlement Policies under the Leave heading
- Use the filters to select only those employees that are part of a specific pay point or pay frequency
- Use the drop-down menus to allocate the leave policies for each leave type for each employee on the page. If all employees on the page are on the same policy, use the Copy first value down option to save you time.
- Click Save
It’s as simple as that. For more information on leave management and bulk leave actions, refer to the following pages:
To ease the payroll burden on employers and payroll administrators during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have introduced a new Employee Actions section to our Bulk Actions page to allow users to do the following for their employees in bulk:
- End Service
- Undo End of Service
This new bulk functionality allows you to manage multiple employees’ services in one place on SimplePay. This means that whether you are putting your employees on Reduced Working Time due to COVID-19, or you are reinstating them when business has returned to normal, you will be able to do this easily and for all your employees at once!
To learn more about how this functionality works, head over to our help page here.
For larger companies we recommend limiting this bulk functionality to batches of 50 employees to ensure smoother results.
If you have any questions, please contact our support team.
We are happy to announce that we have increased our bulk actions functionality to include bulk actions for once-off payslips. If you have multiple employees with once-off payslips and need to add items to these payslips, you can now do so in bulk by going to Employees > Bulk Actions.
From here, you can select either Payslip Inputs or Clocking Imports. Then click on Switch to once-off payslips and capture your data accordingly. Please take note of the following:
- Payslip Inputs: As always, only once-off items (i.e. no regular items) can be added to once-off payslips.
- Clocking Imports: Only custom items with Payslip Inputs are supported for this method.
To read more about these functions, the following help pages are available:
If you need further assistance with this new functionality, please contact our support team.
