Within Cintra iQ, all standard Payments and Deductions and Expenses & Benefits that are maintained in the relevant forms for the employee record are calculated when a pay period is opened and will sit in the Payroll Period Input form on the relevant tabs. 


For inputting payroll period for multiple employees, see Batch Input. Batch Input will put all of the variable input from the batch straight into the Payroll Period Input form.

Variable input can be entered directly into the Payroll Period Input form and anything that is in the form can be manually adjusted, although it is recommended that you don’t overwrite any standard values that could be relevant to a future correction, such as salary.

To input payments and rates

  1. Navigate to the employee's Payroll Period Input form.
    Go to Cintra iQ: Employment Record> Forms> Payroll Period Input
  2. Confirm the current Payroll Period.
  3. Navigate to the Payments and Rates tab.
  4. Right-click: New. The New Payment Record dialogue appears.
  5. Select the desired payment heading from the Select Payment heading drop-down.
  6. Click the Next button. The New Payment Record form appears.
  7. Navigate to the Payment Details tab.


    Within the Payment Details tab, the Paid from and Paid to dates are defaulted to the current pay period. If you enter a value for a Rate heading, the rate relevant to these dates is displayed in the Standard Rate pane.

  8. Enter the dates the units are worked. This is so the correct rate is selected in periods where pay award has recently occurred.
  9. Override the Input rate, if necessary.
  10. Enter a Note. It can be helpful when checking input to have more information about the entry. Notes are displayed in the Override Reason column within the Payments and Rates tab.
  11. Click the OK button. The record appears in the Payments and Rates tab.



  1. If the employee has multiple posts and there is a rate relevant for each of these posts for this heading, you will see these records in the Standard Rate pane. You need to select the relevant post in the Post field, otherwise you will get an exception.
  2. If there has been a rate change mid-period and the dates are for the whole period, multiple records are displayed in the Standard Rate pane. You need to change the From and To dates relevant to the correct rate.
