EFT Print Payroll Stubs/Slips

This option allows you to email Employees Payroll Stubs/Slips.

The EFT Print Payslips is an email with the Sage 300 Payslip/Paystub attached - with details on the breakdown of the pay, deductions, YTD totals etc. It can be sent after the Generate Payroll and Print Cheques has been run - but before the Print Cheques have been finalised.

The process must be run at the time you would typically print the payslips.


User needs to be in a EFT Security group that has rights to "Print/Email Payroll Stubs/slips".

User needs to be the same user who is running the Payroll Print Checks function. This means a user can only Print/Email payslips for employees that they have access to in Canadian/US Payroll.

Print Paystubs/Payslips - Overview

Prior to using this option, you must run the following in the Canadian or US Payroll

  1. Calculate Payroll
  2. Run Payroll Checks/Cheques process.
  3. Most users choose to Print the checks for Payroll to assign a Cheque Number.
  4. Do not answer the question "were all cheques printed successfully?" and leave the Payroll Print Checks screen open
  5. Run EFT Print Payroll Stubs/Slips with the Print Checks /Cheques screen still open, before posting the cheques.

Note: This is required as Create Payroll EFT File requires content from the payroll temporary tables.


Important! You can only Print/Email Payroll Stubs/Slips if you leave the Print Cheques screen open or answer "No" to the "Were all checks printed successfully?".
Once you answer YES, the cheques/checks are posted and are not available to be reprinted/emailed.
