Abacus Help Files StaffStaff Salary Information

Staff Salary Information

Abacus is not a payroll system however we do encourage you to input staff salary information onto the system as it is a great way of making the payroll system you do use a lot easier, as all the information is stored ready to pull out of Abacus.

Click on the red 'Staff' icon and then onto the 'Salary' tab. Make sure you are on the staff member whose salary you wish to input.
