When do I select certain payroll items as recurring?

You only apply payroll items as recurring for payments that are paid every month.

Examples would be: child care allowance, travel/petrol allowance, parking allowance, overtime etc. The app will assume the employee will get this payroll item every month until year end and thus affect their PCB calculation

IMPORTANT: Do not enter one-off payroll items (eg, annual bonus) here! For one-off payroll items, kindly refer to point 2. Additional Payroll Items in this help article.

Also note that certain payroll items which are usually paid on a monthly basis but for which the amount may vary from month to month (such as Overtime, Commission, or Incentives) should still be selected as recurring under the employee's profile but with the amount set to 0. When you run payroll, you can enter the relevant figures for each item accordingly or leave it as 0 if no payout is made for that particular payroll month.

You can read more on how to add monthly recurring payroll items and one-off payroll items here.
