For most Crunch clients, the amount of salary you take per month will be consistent. So to make things easier you can set up a recurring payroll run which will automatically create your payroll monthly runs in Crunch for the remainder of a tax year.
To set up a recurring payroll run, navigate to the Pay Yourself tab and select the “New Recurring payroll run” option from the blue drop-down menu to the top right.
On the "New Recurring Payroll Run" form you can choose to run your payroll on the last Friday, or the last day, of each month. Due to HMRC's enforcement of Real Time Information (RTI) payroll runs can now only be added for today's date or a date in the future:
Sections 2 and 3 of the form will automatically reflect a recommended Salary Allowance, and this works in the same way as adding a non-recurring payroll run, however, this recurring method allows you to automate the process in Crunch every month, so that means less work for you.
Section 4 is solely for recurring payroll runs and allows for an automatic email reminder to be set up. Simply tick the "Email reminder" checkbox if you'd like Crunch to send you details of the upcoming payroll run. Then just specify the number of days before the payroll run you'd like to receive that email.
Once you've saved your recurring payroll run, you can always find and edit the recurring payroll run (until it is finished) under the "Scheduled payroll runs" section of the "Payroll runs" sub-tab:
Every time your recurring event runs and creates a payroll run, that payroll run will be electronically filed with HMRC in order to comply with HMRC's Real Time Information legislation. While the event itself will remain editable until its completion, the payroll runs it creates will not be.
