Synod Payroll Implementation FAQs
The Synod Payroll Implementation Project is entering its ‘Go Live’ Readiness Phase.
The FAQs below seek to address questions which have been asked over the past number of months. We would encourage you to send us any further questions which you might have regarding the project and/or new system.
We are very excited to now be entering this phase of the project and look forward to the standardisation and alignment of Payroll Processes and automation which this will bring.
The new system goes live effective the first payroll paid after 1 July.
- Thursday 13th of July 2017 (Fortnightly Payroll)
- Friday 14th of July 2017 (Monthly Payroll)
No. All payrolls (whether monthly or fortnightly) will continue to be processed and paid in accordance with existing timelines.
Yes. All existing employee and minister payroll ids have been carried forward and retained within the New Preceda System.
Ministers and employees will still continue to use Preceda Self Service to access payslips, payment summaries and check leave balances etc.
Relevant employee & minister payroll data upto payment dates on or before 30 June will continue to be accessible under their existing Preceda login credentials.
From 1 July, they will have a separate login to the New Preceda Database.
All users will receive an automatic email notification during the first week of July. This will notify them of their login credentials to the Self Service Portal of the New Preceda Platform.
The system login will default to the personal email address which they have supplied to Synod Payroll as part of their On Boarding process.
All payslips and payment summaries will continue to be accessed via the web enabled Preceda self service.
The only difference is that any payslips and payment summaries relating to payments made prior to July 2017 will be accessed through their current Preceda login credentials.
Access to payslips and payment summaries relating to payments made after July 2017 will be accessed through their new Preceda login credentials (to be advised via email during the first week of July).
Ministers and Employees will continue to apply for leave in accordance with the current practise i.e. complete a leave form, get it approved and submit it to UR Payroll for processing.
You will continue to submit any timesheets in accordance with the current practise i.e. completing a timesheet form, obtaining approval and submitting it to UR Payroll for processing.
Yes. Please contact the UR Payroll Team directly should any of your Ministers or Employees require a copy:

You will still continue to receive the reports after each payroll as well as any end of month and quarterly denominations.
We will be trialing the automatic distribution of certain reports (specifically the Pay Journal and Reconciliation) with a view to fully fledged automation by August 2017.
