Creating Common Earning Types

This tutorial will discuss earning records and how eNETEmployer requires them in order to control the wages or salary for each employee. Earnings can be set up as Hourly (to support varying work hours) or Salary (to support static wage amounts). Earnings can be assigned to pay a fixed amount, a calculated amount, or even an amount that is based on a multiple of another earning. Refer to the Earnings help page for more details on this topic.

For this tutorial, we will discuss how to create eight common earning types: Regular, Salary, Overtime, Double Time, Statutory Pay, Vacation, Commission and Bonus.

  1. Ensure that you are on the Payroll tab, and then choose the Current Payroll - Earnings menu command.
  2. When the Earnings screen appears, choose the New button to insert an earning row in the table.
  3. Enter the data in each cell as it relates to your company earning, and then Save the row information when you are complete.
  4. Repeat the preceding two steps for each new earning, remembering to save each row to store its information.
    Example: In our example below, we have created 8 common earning types that are found in a typical payroll.
