RosterElf Glossary


Payroll includes the staff list that you pay salaries and wages to, during a certain pay cycle or pay run and can also include superannuation and tax payments or deductions.

Your payroll and levels of pay can be structured by the modern industry award that your business falls under. For example, a cafe or restaurant would fall under Hospitality Award MA000009 which would provide business owners with a standard template to pay their staff.

The modern award would also cover rates of pay and loadings across overtime, weekend and public holiday shifts. Timesheets are used to track the hours and shifts that staff have worked and payroll managers can then use this to pay staff accurately with minimal error. It is more likely that businesses who use manual paperwork would find they lose or misplace data. Digital time and attendance tools are helpful in recording time and attendance.

RosterElf incorporates a digital time clock feature in the tablet and smartphone versions. Staff can clock in and out of shifts, record lunch breaks, and managers can also record if the staff has gone home sick. This provides managers with accurate and accessible time and attendance data. When ready to process payroll, managers can compare rostered times, time clock times, and approved times.

Depending on your payroll providers, RosterElf then creates a draft timesheet sent either directly to your payroll software or as a CSV/TXT file for managers to import to their payroll software. This timesheet includes full award interpretation based on the pay templates and pay rates entered.
