Import Wagemaster Payroll Payments into Agrimaster

These instructions apply to both Wagemaster Users

Once you have created the relevant payslips in Wagemaster you then import the file into Agrimaster to process payments to employees.

You also import the Superannuation Contributions file into Agrimaster to process payments to your Superannuation Clearing House. Read more 

These files may be imported separately or at the same time but it would be rare that they would be done simultaneously. The most likely scenario is that the payslips will be imported at the end of each pay period and the superannuation once every quarter.

Also, because Agrimaster treats these payments differently, the procedures are outlined separately. Read more

      • Click on Reports 
      • Click on Payment Summary 
      • Click on Current Pay Period to generate a report for the current PPE to reconcile 
  7. When importing payroll transactions for the first time, the import dates will need to be set. Set the dates of the first and the last PPE transaction date to be imported. In future, the first date should, by default, and that the dates for the next period are selected. 
  8. Check that the Activate Employee list is correct, by clicking on the Activate Employees tab, amend the list if necessary. Now clicking back to the Import Payroll tab 
  9. Select the Payment Date. This is the date the Employees Payroll Payment will be processed/ submitted. 
  10. Select where you would like the transactions to be imported to Cheques/EFT or Transactions
  11. Click Import and Create Transactions mceclip3.png
  12. A list of payslip transactions imported will be displayed. Refer to the Payment Summary Report you previously printed from Wagemaster for the same period to ensure the transactions and values being imported reconcile. 
    Note: Each record created is for an individual payment to an individual bank account e.g. if an employee has $200.00 of their pay deposited into one bank account and the remainder of their pay deposited into another bank account, then two transactions will be created, one for the $200.00 allocation and one for the remainder. 
  13. Click Ok 
  14. You will be taken to the Cheques, EFT, Acc Pay list or Transaction list, depending on where in your Agrimaster cashbook you instructed the payroll and/or superannuation transaction to be sent. 


Processing of Payroll Transactions

Once payroll transactions have been imported into Agrimaster, they can be processed in one of 3 ways:

  1. If imported into EFT Acc/Pay Cheques they can be sent via EFT/internet banking, then reconciled as normal - learn to pay by EFT
  2. If imported into Transactions and cheques are being handwritten, they can be left in transactions and reconciled as normal
  3. If imported into EFT Acc/Pay Cheques they can be sent to the Print or Pay Cheques in the usual manner, then reconciled as normal
