A special case of wage laborer, who is prevalent in most companies, isa so-called €450 worker. The special thing here is that employees get their wage in the same month that they worked, but a maximum of €450.

You can find a general explanation on the creation of payrolls for wage laborers in the respective article.

First ensure that the data in the employee profiles of the €450 workers have been recorded correctly. It is particularly important to check whether the hourly wage (see records), the target hours, and the holiday entitlement are recorded correctly and whether requested absences have been confirmed or rejected.

You can then create the automatic payroll.

Click on the layer-symbol (account settings) on the left-hand side in the navigation → account settings → click on the tab "Payroll" → you can now create an automatic payroll via the + next to actions

Create an automatic payroll

First give it a name.

The settings shown above display the standard settings for a €450 worker. Other settings are also possible, depending on the employment contracts concluded.

The cut-off date indicates on which day the payroll is to be created; the next two fields indicate until which date the data should be included in the payroll.

You can also fill in other data here, depending on how the payroll is handled in your company.

You can choose between wage and salary payrolls under "Type of payroll and data". In the case of a €450 worker, you select "Wage" and can subsequently determine whether the payroll should be based on the target hours on file or the actual hours worked (or planned hours for times where no time tracking has been created yet).

You can subsequently enter €450 under "Max payout in €".

You can also select the "Hours" option and calculate how many hours correspond to the maximum wage based on the hourly wage.

Finally, you can decide whether this payout should be assigned to new employees, whether it should be possible for the last payout to be recalculated later on and, if your company is subdivided into several locations, for which locations the payout should be selectable.

In the "Employee" tab, you can define which of your employees should be assigned the automatic payout on file.

Manual payroll

You still have to make the following settings in the employee profile:

If the employee already has time tracked from previous months, you still have to create manual payrolls for those times. Look at when the employee started with the time tracking in Papershift according to the "Payroll start" in the "Records" tab and then click on the green button with the € symbol on the selected payroll days (the last day of the month in most cases). You must ensure here again that no more than €450 is paid out in the manual payrolls. Hours worked that go beyond the limit are seen as overtime and taken over in the next month as the starting balance.

The payroll will now automatically be created for the coming months based on these criteria.
