If you are using Crystal Payroll and have staff members with different pay rates depending on the hours worked, such as different pay rates for weekends, you can now take advantage of this feature to split your timesheets into multiple entries with the corresponding pay rate.
Here is an example to demonstrate how it works. For instance, let's say you set up two rates for Monday:
Suppose a shift started at 3 PM and finished at 10 PM on Monday, with an unpaid break of 30 minutes. When you export the Crystal Payroll CSV, you will see two entries:
The break is always deducted from the longest entry.
Therefore, when you import this CSV into Crystal Payroll, the system will automatically recognise the hours for each pay rate, eliminating the need for manual calculation.
To set up pay rates, follow these steps:
Next, select the hours and pay rate based on your needs for each day of the week.
If staff members are only on Pay Rate 1, regardless of the time they worked, you can exclude them from these rules.
Here is an example of exported CSV file.
