If you are choosing to use Paybooks in the middle of a financial year, you will need to import the past month's salary data into Paybooks. This is necessary to enable you to draw.
If you are migrating to Paybooks in the middle of the financial year ( the standard FY is April to March), all the past month data should be incorporated into Paybooks to generate required reports and statutory returns and to enable your employees to view payslips of earlier months.

Import these files after choosing the relevant month for importing under Utilities / Legacy Data Import. The file is given here for reference purposes only.
