Can commissions be processed after the monthly payroll cut-off date?

At Remote, we have a payroll cut-off on the 10th of every month. This allows us enough time to process employees' salaries before the end of the month. 

Monthly Payroll

In the event an incentive was not inputted in the platform before the payroll cutoff, it is possible for this to be paid out during our off-cycle payroll run at an additional fee. For incentives or expenses inputted after the monthly payroll cut off, there are two alternatives:

  • The employee waits to receive the expense reimbursement or incentive at the end of the following month. For example, a bonus of €2000 was submitted on the 20th of July, it will not be paid in the same month but at the end of August.
  • As the client, you prefer that the bonus be included in our off-cycle payroll run. This means the bonus needs to be submitted between the 11th-25th to be included in the off-cycle payroll. The employee will receive the bonus on the 10th of the following month. In line with the example above, this will be on the 10th of August.

Semi-Monthly Payroll

When an incentive or expense is not inputted on the platform before the 10th of the month, we will be unable to pay it out at month-end. We will instead have to include it in the mid-month (15th of the following month) payroll at no extra charge. This means that instead of waiting for a whole month due to late input, the employee is able to receive it by the 15th of the following month.
