Depending on your company practice, you can either map your payroll items by Net Salary or Basic Salary:

  • Net Salary is a common and simpler method. The payroll items populated in payroll items mapping will contain payroll data of Net salary and Statutory items only
  • The basic Salary method is used for a detailed breakdown of all payroll items
