Payroll cutoff dates are the deadlines before which Remote must receive notifications about changes to be reflected in the monthly salary for that month. This relates to onboarding new hires and paying out incentives and approved expenses. In certain countries where we run a semi-monthly payroll, we have a different cutoff for incentives and expense reimbursements.
To ensure incentives are paid out and approved expenses are reimbursed in the same month they are submitted, they need to be inputted on the platform no later than the 11th of the month, 11:59PM UTC. There is no extension with this deadline, even if the 11th falls on a weekend or public holiday. If this deadline is missed, the request may be processed in an off cycle payroll run.
Note: We have an exception to this in Bulgaria & Germany. The payroll cutoff date in Bulgaria is the 1st of the month and not 11th while the payroll cutoff in Germany is different each month.

When it comes to changes to an existing employee’s contract, this will require a contract amendment. The deadline for requesting a contract amendment is the 5th of the month.
