Fortnightly pay cycle

The school pay runs on a 14-day pay cycle, beginning Wednesday (day 1) and ending Tuesday (day 14).

Most EdPay transactions are being processed immediately. Those still needing to be processed by your payroll advisor will show as submitted in the activity history. They follow the same process as EdPay and forms, including cut-off times/dates.
