Can you pay an employee with several assignments a single payment?
Yes, Oracle Payroll enables you to pay a single payment to an employee with several
assignments within your organization. You enable the payment by selecting the
Multiple Assignment check box on the Define Payroll window.
Can you run payroll processes and reports multilingually?
Payroll processes and reports are always submitted and always run in the local
language only. This means that US and UK payroll reports can only be run in English.

How do you synchronise a payslip with the official payment date?
Use the payslip offset on the Define Payroll window to specify the number of days
between the completion of your payroll processes and the availability of employee

The Check Date, sometimes called Pay Date, is the date of constructive receipt
of pay, on which paychecks become negotiable.

The Scheduled Run Date is the date scheduled for the Regular run of this
payroll each period.

changing payroll information before a run.

A payslip offset, reckoned from the completion date for your payroll processes
is always a positive number to enable you to prevent employees from viewing
payslips before the official payment date.


Check the Negative Payment Allowed check box if you want the PrePayments
process to include negative payments. If you leave the box unchecked, the
PrePayments process ignores negative payments.

prevent further element entries. You can also reopen the period if necessary.
