Once the Payment and Deduction files have been set up then the default rate to attach to each Payment and Deduction type must be set up BY EMPLOYEE.
To access this utility go to Employees > Feature Payroll > Payment Deduction Setup >
- Choose the appropriate Employee from the drop down list
- Allocate unit amount to each pay type.
This is the static rate/figure which does not change from pay period to pay period. The payroll operator will simply enter the appropriate periodic multiplier to be applied to this rate when processing payroll. For example if the Payment is for Daily Pay then the Daily rate will be entered as the Default Payment, the payroll operator would then simply enter the numbers of days worked in the pay period without the need to enter the daily rate each time.
- Repeat this step for ALL Employees i.e each default payment is specific to each employee
Should a rate need to be changed due to a pay review etc the payroll operator can simply revisit this menu and change the Default Payment so that the new rate will apply from the subsequent pay period.
