Assigning NetSuite Locations, Departments and Classes to Payroll Locations

When generating a GL transaction line, you can assign NetSuite locations, departments and Classes to your payroll locations. Once assigned, the class, location and department will be exported to any earnings lines, super expenses and PAYG expenses that are assigned to that location.

To map locations, classes and departments, follow these steps:

  1. First, make sure you have connected your payroll file to your NetSuite file and have configured your locations, classes and departments in NetSuite.
  2. Log into your Payroll account.
  3. Navigate to Business.
  4. Then in the Payroll Settings select Locations.
  5. Click on the Locations that you wish to assign the department, location or class to. You'll see the below dialogue box:


  6. From the location dialog, youwill need to first select the 'Destination Subsidiary". This will then pre-populate the location list based on the subsidiary. If no destination subsidiary is selected, you will not be able to select a location.
  7. Click Save and your NetSuite classes, locations and departments will be assigned to the payroll location.


Helpful Hint

  • The 'Subsidiary' selected in the Journals screen does not have any affect on the location configuration.
  • The level of complexity added if you are using cross-subsidiary payrolls may cause issues.  Just reach out to us if this happens and we'll do what we can to assist.
