If you ever need to pay your employees beyond their regular earnings—whether for retroactive pay, car or cell phone allowances, or other reasons—we've made this process simple by allowing you to add income types to your payroll.

This streamlined approach ensures that all additional payments are accurately recorded and easily managed, saving you time and reducing the chance of errors.


Upload All Other Income At Once

If your employees frequently have other income, such as tips, our income template allows you to seamlessly download, fill out, and upload all your employees' additional income into Humi. Discover  how to use the income template here.


How To Add An Income Type 

To add an income type provided by Humi, follow the instructions below:

  1. In Payroll, click on the Income Types tab.
  2. Next, click the + Income Type button on the top right corner.
  3. Select the income type you'd like to add from the available income types Humi provides on the dropdown.
    You can request a Custom Income Type if none of these options meet your needs.
  4. When you're ready, click Save.
  5. You'll now see the income type you selected displayed on the Income Types list.
  6. Repeat the steps above until you've added all the income types required. 

The next time you run payroll, you'll see the newly added income types when you click the + Other Income link in the Extra Pay column. Screen_Shot_2022-05-10_at_3.16.39_PM.png

The income types for insurable hours will be displayed at the top, and all other income types will be below in the Income types with a dollar amount section. 

Income types and ROEs 

If you have hourly employees, we strongly suggest you add the income types based on the regular hourly rate to your payroll so that these hours are correctly generated on their ROEs. Learn more about these income types here.
