Pay Item Categories


Pay item categories are a list of categories to group different pay items. You can have multiple pay items per category. For instance, Regular Time and Double Time are both wages earned. You can have an annual bonus and monthly bonus both be part of the total bonus. Some of the pay item categories include Bonus, Commission, Fringe Benefits, PTO, Wages Earned, etc.

 Some of the pay item categories include:

  • Bonus: The payment is a bonus imparted to employees based on their (or the company’s) good performance.

  • Reimbursement: The payment is a reimbursement to the employees for the expenses they incurred on behalf of the company.

  • Wages Earned: The regular wages earned by the employees, including the earnings from overtime.
