In this section, we explain how salary information is transferred to the new Payroll section, what information will remain the same and what will change when the information is copied.
It is possible to transfer old salary information to the new Payroll section (Payroll (new)) by clicking Copy salary info from old in the employee register. If you use this button, only part of the salary information is transferred to the new system, so you should check the information carefully. Some new fields have also been introduced to the Salary info view as a result of the Incomes Register.
Maintaining and re-copying salary information
You can copy the salary information as many times as you need to. If you click Copy salary info from old, the information in the new Salary info section will be replaced by the information in the old section. This being the case, if you have already made changes to the new Salary info section, remember that you will lose them if you copy the old information.
If an employee’s salary information changes before 2019, the updated information in the old section should also be copied to the new Salary info section. We would recommend retaining both the old and new Salary info sections until the end of the year.
We will introduce a new mass tool in the November launch, which will make it easier to make changes to the salary information of several persons. For instance, you can use this tool to select an insurance policy for several persons.
You can use the Copy tool to copy the information from the Employment type field in the old Salary info view to the corresponding field in the new Salary info view in full.
With the Incomes Register, Commission without pension information, Commission and Commission to an outsider will be replaced by Compensation for work. With regard to the Salary category, you should check what information is copied as the employee’s salary category and change the category in the new Salaries section. We will also introduce the new Payment by job salary category as a new option.
Other copied fields
The salary channel and base salary will be copied from the employee’s old information to the new Salary info section. The employment start date and end date will also be copied. These dates have been replaced in the new Salary info section by Valid from and Valid to, respectively.
