Creating Payroll Unit

A Payroll Unit is similar to a Unit of Measure used in the Inventory module. In Tally.ERP 9, pay components are calculated for a given period depending on the payroll Units. You can create Simple as well as Compound Payroll Units measured on Attendance / Production Types such as TimeWork or Quantity.

Creating Payroll Simple Unit

  1. Select Type as Simple

  2. Enter the Symbol for the Unit

  3. Enter the Formal Name

A Compound Payroll Unit involves a combination of two payroll Units.  For example: Box of 10 Nos, Dozen of 12 Pcs, Hr of 60 Mins etc.
