First pay run of the year
When you want to begin your first pay run of a new year, you may find the message "Pay run could not be created. The pay date for the pay run must be in the current tax year."
This means that the current tax year must be closed.
To do so, click on "Payroll", then "Year End Closing". Confirm that there are no other pay runs you need to complete for the year, then click on "Close Year". After a minute or two, you can begin your first pay run for the new year.
