After tons of research on how people use Knit to run their payroll, we found that a lot of people are interested in drawing insights from their data by comparing payruns side-by-side, so we made it as easy as possible to do.
Using the Payroll Discrepancy Report - found on the bottom right of the Payroll Reports grid - you may now compare any two payruns with eachother. Simply select the two payruns and paygroups you would like to compare, that's it. On top of that, this report can be exported in both PDF and csv.
There are 4 different sections of the payroll discrepancy report:
Use the pay summary to compare your total payroll and remittances for the payrun.
Analyze your company's compensation distribution among its departments and compare it between payruns.
Income Type Distribution
Compare income type distributions between two payruns.
Individual Employee Comparison
Finally, compare individual employee gross pay between payruns. This can be done for both salaried and hourly employees.
