End of Year 2016

The End of Year process ensures that Novopay has accurate information to calculate and pay holiday pay to employees. End of Year processing must be completed by 28 November 2016.

Note: If employee information is not available before this date, see End of Year Processing for instructions on how to make changes after 28 November.

The End of Year process has two phases:

  • Preparation - The preparation phase requires you to ensure that employee data is up to date in Novopay Online, to gather last day of duty, termination and leave information for your employees, and to start completing the required forms.
  • Processing - The processing phase requires you to enter data into the End of Year screen and complete End of Year processing in Novopay Online, and to complete the required forms.

Get started early

To avoid delays with End of Year processing and to ensure you have all the information you need, it is strongly recommended that you gather information and complete any forms as soon as possible, so that you are ready when the End of Year screen opens on 12 October 2016.

We have created a flyer with key dates for you to print and keep handy. You can download it here.
