During our Pay Items Webinar, we discussed a few essential features of the Pento platform. This article will summarise the information presented in the session and include helpful links to relevant articles from our Help Centre.
What is a Recurring Pay Item?
A recurring pay item is a pay item that you want to appear on the payroll for more than one month; having the option to add this to the software means that you can confidently set this up, and this will run over a duration of payrolls for an employee, without having to add this to the payslip each month.

What is a One-off Pay Item?
A One-off pay item is a great way to reward employees who have done an exceptional job in one particular month. It only appears on the payroll for that specific month and won't keep coming up each time you process payroll. Examples can include awards such as Employee of the Month or a bonus.
How to set up a One-off Pay Item:
The bulk import option is useful when you have several employees to which you want to add one-off pay items, e.g. a bonus. This feature can also be used to add work hours and overtime. You can import this as a CSV, tsv or txt file rather than individually adding this to an employee's profile.
