Pay items

Use pay items to set up the earnings, benefits, deductions, reimbursements, time off, and earnings orders you use for payroll. This way, you can add recurring pay items to an employee's pay, or adjust their pay for a single pay period for a one-time-only pay item like a bonus.

How it works

Pay items help customise and track the way you pay each employee. You can assign recurring pay items (like deductions) to employees every pay run. Or, you can add pay items to adjust their pay for a single pay period for items like bonuses or commissions. There are already default pay items you can choose from, but you can also add your own. If you add your own pay items, you'll need to assign which account it records to in the general ledger for your accounting.

For example, if an employee has an attachment of earnings order (AEO), set up the pay item and add it to the employee pay template so it includes in each pay run.
