To allocate one or more jobs to the Base Salary category on this paycheque, select the relevant job numbers. By default, the first category selected will be allocated 100% of the amount. If you only want to allocate a portion to that category, select the other jobs you want to include then overwrite the value in the Amount column. See the example below.

Once you have allocated amounts to the various jobs, ensure the value in the Left to Allocate field is zero.

Click OK to return to Pay Employee window which now displays Selected... in the Job column for the Payroll Category.

To delete a job

Deleting a header job will delete its sub (detail) jobs. Also, if a job is allocated to a transaction, the allocation will be removed if the job is deleted.

  1. Go to the Lists menu and choose Jobs.
  2. Click to highlight the job to be deleted.
  3. Go to the Edit menu and choose Delete Job.
  4. If a warning message is displayed, read what it says so you understand the consequences of deleting the job then click OK


What if I am generating pays from Time Billing Activity Slips which have been allocated a job number?

The software will automatically allocate the job number from the Activity Slip to the selected payroll category on the employee's pay.
