Pay Run Variance Report

The pay run variance report allows you to compare the data from one pay run to another and highlight the difference in gross and net earnings, PAYE, statutory payments, deductions, leave and even individual earnings details.

You can run this report from the Payroll 'Reports' Tab > 'Payroll'  > 'Pay Run Variance Report'.

Once the report page is opened, the previous pay run will already be selected to compare against, but you can select any historical pay run to compare with. You can also set the specific sections you want to show in the reports and the amount of variance you want to highlight when running the report.

Once the report is generated, any variances will be highlighted, making it quick and easy to review pay runs for potential mistakes.

The variance report can be exported to excel.


You can easily access the report filter and download button whilst scrolling through the report via a sticky filter, without having to scroll back to the top of the page. The sticky filter buttons will appear on the top right-hand side of the report when you scroll down the report:




Using this sticky filter, you can choose to change the filter parameters by clicking on the 'Filter' button and making the changes then clicking the 'Update' button. You also have the option to clear the filter completely to default by clicking the 'Clear filters' option at the bottom right-hand side of the sticky filter.
