Linking Payroll to Debtors


 One of the biggest advantages of using Synergetic Payroll is its ability to integrate with the Debtors module. This enables automating salary sacrificing a portion of staff members pay (pre or post tax) to credit their (or their spouses) Debtor account. This guide outlines the process of setting it up. 

Set up Debtor Fee Codes

Under Debtors, Fee Maintenance, create a new Debtor Fee Code


 Select the New button


Ensure the Fee code has a GL code defined against it, this account will have a journal created against it as well as the debtors control account when the Pays are updated.


 If you are using Debtor Sub Ledgers, a Fee category must be defined and be pointing to the sub ledger accounts that you want to credit from Payroll.
