Types of Payrolls

There are two types of Payrolls available in Humi: Recurring and Off-Cycle payrolls. You can use the tabs below to learn more about each type.

Recurring Payrolls Off-Cycle Payrolls

Recurring payrolls are what most people think of when they think of payroll. This refers to the regularly scheduled payroll that goes out on a recurring frequency to your employees. So, for example, if you're paid biweekly, your recurring payroll would be set to a "biweekly" frequency. 

When you joined Humi, this scheduled payroll frequency was set up for you. At the start of each payroll period, you'll see these recurring payrolls are automatically prepared for you to go in, edit, and process your payroll.
