How to Add Recurring Payroll Items
✅ Step 1 – Navigate to an employee's contract
Select the People tab and click an employee from the list.
Select View Agreement to access their contract details.
✅ Step 2 – Scroll down to Recurring Payroll Items and click Add
✅ Step 3 – Select G2N Payroll Item from dropdown menu
Select Payroll Item from existing G2N List.
Note: Payroll Item Drop Down will only display a list of all items (Global + client specific) which have been tagged as “Available in payroll report”.
This list will only show G2N items marked as a "Recurring Item" for the entity.
Missing Payroll Items
If you do not already have a recurring G2N item established, you can create one by clicking View Org Settings or selecting Add Missing Payroll Item at the bottom of the Payroll Item list.
Follow the prompts on screen to create a new G2N Item.
Toggle on “Available in payroll report” and "Recurring Item" to ensure the new item will be available in the Payroll Item drop down menu.
✅ Step 4 – Enter a Start Date and an Amount
Leave the End Date field blank to set the recurrence as indefinite. (You can return to the item at any time to set an end date.)
Payroll Cycle Drop Down Menu
Note: Payroll cycle will only appear if the entity is set to bi-monthly, meaning you can decide if payment will occur on the 1st or last cycle of the month. You may specify which period the recurring payment needs to be paid/deducted. If your entity is not bi-monthly, you will not see this option.
The Payroll Cycle Menu Options are:
- Every Cycle
- First Cycle Only
- Last Cycle Only
✅ Step 5 – Select Add to create a recurring allowance/deduction
Edit Recurring Payroll Items
✅ Step 1 – Select Pencil Icon to Edit existing Recurring Payroll Items
✅ Step 2 – Enter an End Date for currently set amount. Then select Next to continue.
✅ Step 3 – Enter updated item details. Select Save.
Any changes you make to recurring payroll items will not apply to a payroll cycle that has already begun processing.
The adjustments you submit will apply to the next applicable payroll cycle.
Delete Recurring Payroll Items
✅ Step 1 – Select Action Menu Icon (Three Dots). Select to Delete
✅ Step 2 – Select Yes, Delete to confirm
