Employee allowances can range from providing remote employees with a daily spending quota, right through to providing a travel allowance if the employee is regularly on the road for work. There can be many types of allowances offered, so having a register where you can record which of your employees is receiving what allowance will reduce your administrative time spent in this area.
This feature allows you to create a new benefit category, edit the information if it changes, and delete the record if it is no longer relevant. However, it is not used to assign the monetary value of the benefit nor to allocate the benefit to an employee. To assign the monetary value and designate which employee will receive this benefit, refer to the following article.
