Review Payroll Summary

The payroll’s summary is broken down into three sections:

  1. Payroll Obligation
  2. Employee Net Pay
  3. CRA Remittances

*An Employer Health Tax (EHT) section will only populate if the payroll is done in a province that requires an employer payroll tax such as the Employer Health Tax.

Payroll Obligation

A payroll’s obligation is the Total employee net pay + CRA Remittance + Other deductions.

In this section, it's important to review the Account Debit line, because this is the amount that will be withdrawn from your company bank account when the payroll is processed.

Important note on payroll deadlines

If payroll is run after the payroll deadline, the payment method for all employees will be automatically changed to cheque and you'll be responsible for issuing the payments by cheque.

This is done because Humi requires 3-4 business days to process your payroll, and prevent employees from being paid late.

If you missed your deadline, contact support before processing the payroll to see if we can extend the deadline for you. 
The deduction amounts, as well as reimbursements, will still be debited and processed through Humi Payroll.

If the payroll is run after its remittance due date, Humi Payroll will not debit or remit any payroll obligations. Payroll administrators are encouraged to remit directly to the CRA.

For more information on late payments please reach out to contact support.


Employee Net Pay

This section displays the total amounts that will be paid by direct deposit and by cheque. Payroll administrators can use these amounts to determine whether manual actions are needed.

Cheque - Amount that should be paid manually by cheque to employees

Direct Deposit - Amount that is automatically processed through Humi Payroll


CRA Remittances

This section is where you'll find the breakdown of all statutory payroll deductions that will be remitted to the CRA on your behalf based on your remittance schedule.


We highly recommend that you verify that all the numbers shown here are accurate because under-remittances may result in penalties and interests imposed by the CRA.


Employer Payroll Tax

Depending on the province employees are paid in, the payroll may contain information on employer payroll tax obligations such as Employer Health Tax amounts for employers that pay their employees in Ontario.

Humi Payroll does not remit this amount but does provide a report of the calculation, the amount due and the due date.

Click on the Detail button to see an in-depth breakdown of the amounts.


The calculated Employer Payroll Tax amounts are only estimates since each employer may have already remitted payroll taxes in the past or has applicable carried-over tax credits.


Finish reviewing

Once the payroll information has been entered and you've finished reviewing the payroll summary, we highly recommend that payroll administrators export a Payroll Register report for the period to confirm that all line items are calculated accurately. Learn more about the Payroll Register report here.

Once you're sure that all records are set up accurately, click the Complete & Pay button in the bottom right.

Woohoo! We're almost done!


Humi says the payroll isn’t locked?

If you have the Time Off/Time Tracking & Payroll Integration enabled, you’ll need to lock your hours before you can click Complete & Pay. To learn how, click here.
