Create Employee Categories (Payroll)

While an Employee Group is available by default, an Employee Category provides an additional level of employee classification. An employee category can be used to track the salaries paid to employees working in specific projects or locations such as Head Office and Regional Offices.

Note: The Employee Categories option is available only if the option Maintain more than one payroll or cost category is enabled in F11: Accounting features .
