How to enter start-up employee totals
If your church did not opt for a comprehensive conversion, and is starting to use ParishSoft Payroll in a month other than January, you can enter the Employee Start-Up Totals to record payrolls for the calendar year paid from another source.
The data you enter in Start-Up Employee Totals are added to the payrolls and will correct Calendar Year To Date Totals on the employee’s paycheck stub as well as report the entire year payments on the 941 and W-2.
- Click Setup and choose Start-Up Employee Totals under Optional Setup.
- Enter the appropriate date in Calendar year totals for all employees as of the last payroll processed in your old system. Select each Employee’s name from the Employee’s list on the left.
Caution, you must never change this date. Start-Up totals may only be entered once and changing the date for one employee will change the dates of all employee's start-up totals.
- Enter startup gross wages and deduction totals:
- As noted above, once you have entered Employee Start-Up Totals and you have confirmed the correct amounts and date, you must never change the date. Changing the date will change it for all records and reports. If you later need to enter start-up totals for another employee, you may only do so when the employee's payroll information is as of the "Calendar year totals for all employees as of" date. In the above example, you should only enter information as of 5/22/2017.
