By default, our payroll software outputs the year end employee earnings data sorted by employee number (or first in first out), not alphabetically. Our former T-slip preparation software kept this same (first in first out) order when creating new T4 slips. Basically slip 1 was always the first T4 slip you entered, slip 2 was always the 2nd T4 slip you entered etc. Of course, the printed T4 output was sorted alphabetically, but not the actual slip number in the data entry area.
When I carry forward Profile T4 files to Taxcycle the employee data from 2015 are imported alphabetically, and not in the order they existed in Profile (and within our payroll software).
I want to confirm there is no setting in Taxcycle that will allow the importing of 2015 T4 data in their actual slip order and not alphabetically. If there is no way other than to import alphabetically, that is fine, I might be able to change some things on my end to make it work. I just want to double check before I make procedural adjustments on how T4’s are entered.
Going a little further … When I import or bring forward 2015 slip data from Profile, it imports alphabetically as described above, but when I add lets say 5 more employees to the employer, it adds them to the end, and not alphabetically.
It could be that in order to get the employees to show up in the order I want, I would need to either delete the actual employee slips in Taxcycle (or not carry forward any of the actual slips) and re-enter all the employee information in Taxcycle.
