If you use the Briox standard chart of account you do not need to do anything to set up your accounting for payroll but you may want to check the following:
Default accounts for Payroll
Our standard COA has been updated with more payroll accounts and we have created a set of predefined default accounts to manage payroll with.
If you wish to use different accounts, simply create and/or select other ones from under Registry - Chart of Accounts - Default Accounts.
Predefined journal type for payroll
A predefined journal type for payroll has been created so that your payroll journals are automatically created using this payroll type.
Cost Centres and Projects
The Salary Journal
Salary Journals are created automatically via the API. When you have run payroll you can go to the Salary Journal menu under Payroll and import the salary journal.
Choose the month, the journal series, and the date the journal is to have and click on Import Journal.
You will be presented with the new journal and have the chance to edit it if necessary before saving it as a draft or posting it directly.
Note! Both drafts and journals can be reconciled with the salary payment under banking.
All the balance sheet accounts are summed to one row per account while the P&L accounts are detailed incase you need to enter cost centres per employee for example.
Note! The Salary Journals view under Payroll is the same view as the Accounting - Journals view. This means that you can also import and work with your salary journals under Accounting if you wish.
Your payment method
To be able to pay your employees, make sure you have set up a payment method in Briox.
If your payment method is online, make sure your webb service channel includes payroll payments (file type SALA).
Note: All existing Briox WS channels include salary payments except the NORDEA webb service channel. Please contact you bank to add salary payments to your agreement.
