Name

Type and Description

1.  Overtime Pay Factor

4 numeric digits, with 3 decimal places (9.999).

 

This value is used when entering employee's rates of pay in the Employee File Maintenance application.  The overtime pay rate will default to the regular pay rate times this overtime pay factor.  This rate can be manually overridden during Employee File Maintenance.

2.  Special Pay Factor

4 numeric digits, with 3 decimal places (9.999).

 

This field is used when entering the employee's rates of pay in the Employee File Maintenance application.  The special pay rate will default to the regular pay rate times this special pay factor.  This rate can be manually overridden during Employee File Maintenance.

3.  Sup Pay Fwt Pc

4 numeric digits, with 2 decimal places (99.99).

 

During the Time Transaction Processing application, supplemental wage payments may be entered (for such things as bonuses, commis­sions, etc.).  The normal federal withholding tax calculations need not be done on such payments, if the time transactions contain only supplemental pay.  Instead, FWT can be calculated as a flat percentage of the supplemental payment, given by this field.  If this entry is zero, then supplemental earnings will have FWT calculated in the usual way.

Sup Pay Fwt Pct (continued)

Note:  State taxing authorities also allow this flat percentage method of calculating withholding on supplemental wage payments.  This is provided for in the state tax calculation routines (see the State/City Tax Codes Maintenance application).

 

 

Fields 4 Through 6

 

After checks are printed in the Print Payroll Check application, and when manual payroll transactions are being posted, if the user does not manually distribute these amounts, vacation pay, holiday pay and sick pay will be posted as a debit to the expense account whose main account number is the value entered in these fields, and whose profit center account num­ber is the same as the profit center account number of the wage account entered for the particular employee in the employee record.  If, however, any one of these expense accounts is entered as all nines, then all pay of this type (vacation or holiday or sick) will be distributed to G/L as a part of every employee's regular wages, to the employee's wage account.


 

Name

Type and Description

4.  Vaca Pay Exp Act

Up to 8 alphanumeric characters.

 

This is dependent on the format of G/L account number specified in the Company file.

5.  Hol Pay Exp Act

Up to 8 alphanumeric characters.

 

See description in Item 4 above.

6.  Sick Pay Exp Act

Up to 8 alphanumeric characters.

 

See description in Item 4 above.

 

 

Fields 7 Through 16 And 20 Through 21

 

If the profit center portion of these account numbers is entered as all nines, the profit center from the employee's wage account will be used when posting distributions to the PR Distribution File.

 

If the department portion of these account numbers is entered as all nines, the department from the employee's wage account will be used when posting distributions to the Distribution File. 

 

Fields 7, 8 and 9

 

The employer's share of FICA and FUI payments are not deductions from the employee's pay.  Therefore, to keep the General Ledger in balance, two accounts are provided for each of these:  an expense account and a liability account.  Only the main account number is entered for the expense accounts.  The profit center account number and department account number is always the same as the profit center account number of the employee's wage account.

 

Note:  The Manual Transaction Processing application posts the employer's share of FICA to the General Ledger but does not automati­cally post the FUI amounts.  These amounts are posted in the normal check printing, but for checks entered in Manual Transaction Processing, amounts will have to be calculated as distributions or adjust­ments and entered manually into the General Ledger package.

 

If you wish no automatic posting of FUI or employer FICA to be made to the General Ledger during the Payroll check-printing run, but wish to do this manually over longer time intervals, then leave these fields (or either one) blank.  If you do this, then you will not be requested to enter the corresponding liability account number (fields 9 and 10).
