Accumulators (Payroll Tab)

This screen allows you to work with Accumulators in eNETEmployer. Accumulators are used to collect or build up amounts that will be used in various payroll calculations. Each accumulator contains settings that control how the accumulator accrues (gathers) its amount. Accumulators are used to keep a running total of specified information or amounts and can be used to automatically generate earnings or hours for the current pay. The most common use of accumulators is to calculate vacation pay owing to the employee as well as to disburse vacation pay on each cheque. Other common uses of accumulators are to calculate sick entitlements, seniority time, banked time, etc.
