We have been working on expanding our self-service functionality recently and are pleased to announce that we have added two new features. These changes allow you to disable different types of self-service requests (i.e. leave and / or info update requests). You’re now also able to hide leave balances for all or some of your leave types.
You can make these setup changes by navigating to Employees > Self-Service > Settings and then selecting either General or Leave from the drop-down menu.
To disable self-service request types, select General from the menu and select whichever types of requests you would like to disable for self-service. Once you’ve done this, self-service users won’t be able to submit any new requests for the type you disabled.
To hide leave balances, select Leave from the menu and uncheck the leave types for which you would like to hide the balances. After you’ve done this, self-service users won’t be able to see their leave balances for the specific leave type, but will still be able to submit requests.
We hope that these new features improve your payroll processing experience.
For more information on how to make these changes, please refer to our help site pages here or contact our support team.
We are happy to announce the release of a new feature that allows you to override payslip end dates in bulk. This feature is used to extend or shorten the payment period for a specified payslip.
This feature is particularly useful for companies that have an annual shutdown and pay their employees upfront for the period that they are on leave. Of course, overriding payslip end dates in bulk is not exclusively for annual shutdowns and this feature can be used in various contexts.
For more information on how to use this bulk action, refer to our help articles:
SimplePay is an easy-to-use online payroll system which is designed to take as much as possible off your hands. We have taken the simple design used by SimplePay South Africa, Singapore and Ireland and have carefully adapted it to Hong Kong’s needs based on months of research and testing.
SimplePay Hong Kong ensures payroll for monthly paid (including hourly paid) employees is easy. Deductions for provident funds like MPF or ORSO are easy to set up with SimplePay Hong Kong. You can even download your monthly MPF Remittance Statements to submit to your scheme provider with the click of a button.
SimplePay creates an IR56B for each of your employees, which you can submit to the Inland Revenue Department together with your IR56A.
With SimplePay, leave is completely managed. We calculate and track entitlements, allow you to record leave and calculate the necessary leave pay in line with the requirements laid out by the Employment Ordinance. Through self-service, leave requests and approvals can easily be managed.
