On occasions you may have to allocate your employees costs across multiple locations. Before you do this you will have to ensure that you have the locations set up within your company's profile.
You will also need to ensure that employee/s working at multiple locations have the relevant locations allocated to their profile's within the system. This will ensure they have those locations available to have hours/costs credited against them.
There are three ways to split costs across multiple locations. Firstly, they can be entered through the time sheets, secondly by manually allocating earnings to a location within a pay run and thirdly by adding additional earnings lines within the employee file.
Using Time Sheets
There are multiple ways that timesheets can be entered, but the common factor is that the 'location' must be entered if the hours/costs are to be allocated as desired. The below is an example of timesheets being entered by a manager on behalf of an employee, however employees can also submit timesheets via the following ways:
The hours allocated to the location/s will be reflected within the Pay Run
Manually Allocating Earnings to a location within a Pay Run
You can manually allocate a location to an employee's earnings within a pay run. If you need to, you can add an additional earnings line via the Actions > Add earnings option.
Then, against the required earnings line select the correct pay category and then select the location that you want the employees hours to be allocated against:
Enter the correct hours according to the amount of time worked at the selected location, and click 'save' once the details are correct.
The hours allocated to the location/s will be reflected within the pay run, and you can repeat this process multiple times to add additional hours at different locations.
Adding additional Earnings lines within the employee file
By adding additional earnings lines within the employee file you will permanently create a line with every future pay run. This/these additional lines can be deleted if not required. You can also add more lines if required.
Follow these steps to add additional lines via the employee file;
- Go to the Employee file > Pay rates page
- The first pay rate showing in the screenshot below relates to what has been set under the ‘Pay run defaults’ page
- Be sure to leave the box under ‘Show in Pay run’ unticked, otherwise:
- Scroll to the bottom of the page where you’ll see ‘Additional earnings lines’. You’ll need to add in the allocation of wages against each location as a separate item, so you'll need to add another record for each location and enter the required number of hours for each one:
When you run a pay run you’ll end up with the wages split across locations as per your additional earnings lines.
