PRACTMNT Payroll PR Account File Maintenance

PR Account File Maintenance

Application Overview

 Of all the accounts in General Ledger, only some will be affected by Payroll.  They are:

    • One or more cash accounts
    • One or more wage accounts
    • Deductions, withholding expense and liability accounts
    • Payroll tax expense accounts along with other types of earning accounts

    The PR Account File stores the numbers of all the accounts that will be directly affected by Payroll.  A description for each account is also stored.  When an account number is entered from within the Payroll package, it is checked against this file.  If the account number is not found, the entry is invalid, and the operator must enter a different number.  If the account number is found, the description is displayed on the screen so he can see if this is the intended account.  This greatly reduces the number of operator entry errors that occur on account numbers.

     The account number format is variable and dependent on how many levels are defined in the Company Setup application. As previously discussed in Package Overview, the account number format can incorporate up to three integrated levels for each account. These include a main account number, profit center number, and department number. Each may include as many as eight alphanumeric characters. But the TOTAL number cannot exceed fifteen (15).  For more complete information of how to set up your account number format see the Application Overview section of Company Setup.

     The Import PR Accounts from G/L application will allow a range of accounts from the G/L Account File to be imported into the Payroll Account File.  This selection appears only if the Elliott General Ledger package is installed.
