STANDARD CAPABILITIES

PASSWORD PROTECTION
via two level "Security Officer/Master" and "User" system to prevent unauthorized access to payroll data. Each payroll has its own passwords, which may or may not be unique to that payroll at user's discretion.

VACATION USAGE
can be tracked and reported. Operator can cause vacation usage and hours remaining to appear on pay stubs.

AUTOMATIC CARRY-FORWARD
of any negative net pay amounts (from fixed-dollar deductions which exceed gross pay), with automatic deduction from the first available positive paycheck.  

CARRY FORWARD CONTROL
for each employee governs whether carry-forward is generated Normally, flagged via a Report during calculation, or Suppressed.

CASH ADVANCES
are easily handled. The balance due is reported on the pay stub. You can cause repayment by entering a specific deduction, or set up a convenient automatic repayment deduction which repays a certain amount, amount per hour, or percentage of gross pay: the last payment will automatically be adjusted to the exact balance due!

401(K), 403(B), 501(c) PENSION PLANS, AND S-125 "CAFETERIA" BENEFIT PLANS
are supported by tax treatment codes with combinations of User-Defined Deductions and Regular and Non-Cash User-Defined Pay Categories.

HELPFUL ERROR RECOVERY
The system warns you if you try perform functions out of order, issue duplicate paychecks, etc. It allows you to audit results, make changes, and re-compute payroll as many times as necessary before you issue paychecks. Automatic Backup allows simple recovery from equipment malfunctions. You can restart or reprint torn or jammed checks, W-2, or 1099 forms without starting all over or ruining totals. DATASMITH payroll respects the operator (it even says "Thank you"): it doesn't set up roadblocks, and it doesn't gloat about catching an error: instead, it tries to provide meaningful help .

SELF-ADJUSTING COMPANY, DEPARTMENT TOTALS:
you make sure the Employee information is correct, and Custom Payroll automatically takes care of the rest! Takes the pain out of re-do!

EASY PREVIEW AND RE-DO
helps you get each payroll right! Custom Payroll shows you Company and Department totals...even shows you and image of each employee's pay stub...before checks are issued! Closed too quickly?.."Un-Initialize" utility gives you another chance to make it right. Helpful previous-period correction aids, too.

OVER 32 USEFUL REPORTS
are included. Most reports are available in operator's choice of sorting orders. One-key pause/cancel helps you avoid wasted runs. Timed scrolling with "pause" and scrolling speed control for useful on-screen previews. Send reports to a text file and use a standard word processor to edit or include them in other documents.

HOURS TRANSFER FACILITY
allows you to prepare hours data with a Word Processor or other "foreign" software: then edit or mix it with normally-entered and automatic payroll data.
