Have more questions? Submit a request
Within the Post History window, you can assign a post to an employee. You can also perform the following: 
  1. Use spine points via Spine Point History tab to pay employees.


    If you have chosen not to use posts, but you do pay employees by grade and/or pay spine, then the Grade form will be available to you and configured to allow the input of grade history and/or spine point history for an employee. For more information about Grades, see Setting Up Grades and Spine Points.

  2. Assign a work pattern to the employee via the Working Pattern tab.
  3. Attach assignments to the post via the Assignments tab.

To assign posts

  1. Navigate to the Post History form.
    Go to Cintra iQ: Employment Record> Forms> Post History
  2. Right-click: New in the top pane. The Select Post window appears.
  3. Highlight the desired post.
  4. Click the Select button. The Insert Employee Post form appears.
  5. Enter the relevant details on this form.
  6. Click the OK button to save.

Other payrolled benefits

Within Cintra iQ, you can payroll any other benefits that are not vehicles or mileage, to be taxed during a payroll period instead of when the P11D is submitted to HMRC at the end of the year.


Other benefits can be Health Insurers, Dentists, Opticians etc.

Now that you have created an Other Payrolled Benefit addition heading, you can apply the desired benefit and its taxable allowance to an employee.

To assign other payrolled benefits

  1. Navigate to the Expenses & Benefits window.
    Go to Cintra iQ: Employment Record> Forms> Expenses/Benefits
  2. Navigate to the Other Payrolled Benefits tab. 
  3. Select the Show all allowances and rates headings option. The addition heading(s) created in the Other Payrolled Benefits window appears in the Allowance/Rate Name pane. 
  4. Select the desired benefit.
  5. In the right hand pane, right click> New. The New Employment Specific form appears.


    The Annual Payment is divided by 12 months to equal the Period Allowance. The Period Allowance is the rate that is taxed.

  6. Enter the necessary information and the Employment specific amounts.
  7. Click the OK button. The record is associated to the selected benefit. And the active rates that are applied to the date range is displayed.
