LILAC Payroll Software is an easy to use but effective implementation of the requirements of the Australian payroll regimen, incorporated into the LILAC double-entry database in a fashion that promotes easy and natural, simultaneous data capture for both payroll and costing outcomes.
Employee Ledger Accounts
A fully detailed transaction history of debits and credits is maintained for each and every Employee where a credit represents an increase in entitlement or gross pay, and a debit represents a net payment or deduction. Every Employee's ledger account is cleared to zero each pay period as a natural audit of the cyclical operation of the payroll ledger.
This history is maintained for an indefinite time, and in practice most customers maintain one to two year's of full detail in their LILAC Payroll ledger ensure a full financial years detail is available for reporting and analysis purposes.
WYSIWYG Pay Slip
A single LILAC WYSIWYG form plays the dual role of employee data entry and periodical pay slip. This ensures routine cross-checking and validation of the employees data as part of the repetitive pay cycle. A report form of pay slip is also available as an alternative where a more restricted approach to employee management is appropriate.
The Australian Taxation Office publishes tables of coefficients from time to time to facilitate the calculation of PAYG taxation deductions by payroll software packages. LILAC Payroll provides for the keyboard entry of these coefficients by the operator to readily cope with periodical changes to tax rates.
APCA Electronic Funds Transfer
In common with the LILAC Creditors module, the LILAC Payroll module provides a straightforward interface to the Australian Banking EFT format so that employee payments may be routinely processed through, National Online, Desk bank and similar compatible on-line banking products.
The LILAC Payroll module operates within the context of the LILAC double-entry accounting data-base such that a very natural interface occurs to job costing, work in progress and labour invoicing activity.
The power and efficiency of the LILAC database engine enables any size payroll from 6 to 60000 employees to be managed in minimal time and effort.
LILAC Payroll has been effectively deployed in large scale agency employment labour billing applications and offers a fully integrated client invoicing function, where all the data upon which invoices to clients are ceated, is based is capture from the payroll processing with no additional effort.
