Deduction categories | Payroll Web Platform

Overview

A payroll deduction occurs when you remove funds from an employee's pay before they receive the pay cheque. Legislation mandates some deductions, and some are because of a private agreement between an employer and an employee. The payroll platform default setup for a new business includes three basic deduction categories, which are salary sacrifice super, pre-tax deduction, and post-tax deduction.

The Deduction Categories feature allows you to create a new deduction category and specify details such as the category, external ID, payment classification and liability general ledger mapping code. You can also use this feature to edit any previously entered information and delete a record that is no longer required.
