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 Novo forms, including cut-off times/dates.

The pay cycle has changed (from the start of pay period 03 or 20 April 2022 – 4 May 2022), the pay period during the school holiday break. You can read more about pay cycle changes here.

Pay periods

The pay period number counts the fortnightly pay periods 1 to 26 (or occasionally 27) from the beginning of the tax year in April. Pay periods use the following format:

pp[tax year][pay period number]

For example, pp202219 is pay period 19 in the 2022 tax year. This pay period begins on 1 December 2021.

See the Payroll calendar for pay period cut-off dates.

Note: Some reports specify pay periods the other way around, eg 192022.
