When you calculate payroll, the distributions defined on the employee's pay type, benefit, deduction, and tax records are combined with the employee's gross pay distribution. The gross pay distribution defaults from the employee's GL distribution.

The GL Distribution tab of an employee record specifies a fund and department segment. The GL Distribution tab of a pay type, benefit, or deduction specifies an account code or full account number. If an account code is specified on the pay type, then a calculations combines the account code from the pay type with the other segments defined on the employee record.

  • Example 1: An employee GL Distribution tab displays 01-****-04 and the pay type distribution is to account code 5405

    Employee expense distributes to 01-5405-04
