Set Payment Mode

Set the payment mode for the disbursal of salaries. By default, the Bank transfer payment mode is set for all the employees, which means direct deposit of salaries to the bank accounts of employees.

The Set Payment Mode functionality allows HR Manager/ HR Admin to modify the mode of salary payment. Employees are paid through different modes. For example, salaries of trainees can be paid in cash, contract workers through cheque, and employees through wire transfer. Payment mode may vary for each organization depending upon their convenience.

In this stage, you can stop the payment of an employee even after finalizing the salary. Stop payment may rarely happen in case of emergency. For example – according to the company’s policy, an employee needs to surrender a month’s salary when leaving the company without prior notice. In this case, the company can stop the payment of the employee by changing the mode of payment from wire transfer to cash. By doing that, even though the salary is finalized, it is not transferred to bank. The employee can be paid through cheque or cash, when required.
