Disclaimer: The content of this article pertains to the altHR payroll module (not PayrollPanda). As of this date, the altHR payroll module has been discontinued as we form a new partnership with PayrollPanda to bring forth enhanced payroll solutions for our users.


If the admins wish to update employees’ salaries and effective dates of those salaries, admins can do it via these 2 places:

  1. The Payroll > Compensation page
  2. The People > Compensation page


Please note that updating salary and effective from the above 2 places, the salary changes and effective date will be permanently recorded in the employee's compensation data.


Attention: "Effective Date" is employee's actual salary revision effective date. For example: Joining date, Date of last increment, promotion etc. It is NOT the date of using altHR
