In the employee default setup, you can enter payroll-related expenses and adjustments that affect most (or all) of your employees. These expenses and adjustments can include the following:

  • Deductions, such as health insurance, payments to a retirement plan, or union dues

  • Company-paid benefits, such as health or life insurance

  • Additions, such as reimbursed travel expenses, or advances against salary

To do this task

  1. Click Employee Center.

  2. Click Manage Employee Information at the top of the list and click Change New Employee Default Settings.

  3. In the first line of the Additions, Deductions, and Company Contributions table, click a payroll item from the Item Name drop-down arrow.

    • If the amount and limit are different for each employee, leave them blank. You can customize the amount and limit for each employee when you set up your employee records.

    • If the payroll item you want is not listed, choose from the drop-down list.

  4. Enter other payroll items on additional lines of the table, as needed.

    If any payroll item is based on a percentage of gross pay, the order in which you enter them in the table is important.
