End of Year 2018

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 26 November 2018.

Note: If employee information is not available before this date, see End of Year Processing for instructions on how to make changes after 26 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 10 October 2018.

You can download and use the End of Year 2018 Guide (PDF, 640 KB) which contains the End of Year Checklist and Guide.

Alternatively, see End of Year Preparation on this website.
