Regarding Pay cycle change - want to make the salary count from 26th to 25th of each month - CiteHR
Cite.Co is a repository of information created by your industry peers and experienced seniors sharing their experience and insights.
In my current Organization I have been following this calculation( 26th-25th of each month) from past 1 year. During Initial days it was very difficult to calculate because we only pay for working days excluding Sundays and Holidays. But if somebody work in Sunday or Holiday will get extra pay.
The challenges you will come across will be:
1)CL, SL and Earned leave allotment will get imbalance in HRMS portal. Imagine what are you going to do end of Dec month.
2) If you have hire employees with multiple shift type say X employee was working as Part time but suddenly his shift moved from Part time to full time in middle of the month, Salary Calculations will get difficult.
3)In HRMS Portal, every month we need to Finalize the Timesheet to process salary on payroll, to finalize it, portal will pick Calender year automatically.
4) Repetitive Deduction- If someone took leave from 23d to 26th of present month, he will have salary with deduction in current and next month payroll.
There are many more and above challenges are faced by me but now things are somewhat streamline.
I have done multiple coordination with my HRMS team to get the things done according to my Origination requirement.
Now choice is yours.
Regards,

We follow the practice as follows.
I) Current Month 1 to 25 actual attendance 26th to Month end assume as Present.
II ) Previous Month's actual 1 to 31 - Less Paid in Previous Month =Difference as Adjustment may positive if filled leave 1 to 25 or negative if remain absent after 25th.

Dear KK!HR,
The solution you gave is quite good. Can you please help me how to start this system in the first month.
1. Suppose, salary till July has been paid on the attendance from 1st to 31st.
2. Now, if for August salary calculation attendance is considered from 26th of July to 25th of August, then salary is given twice for the period of 26th - 31st July.
3. We can not start this process by considering the attendance from 1st to 25th for the first month or can not be deducted later as then employees will get 25 days salary only.
