Use Locations where employees are located in separate areas and location sorting and subtotalling are required on some reports e.g. sick leave taken by individual locations. A Location can be a suburb, state, branch etc.

If employees can work in different sites week by week, use Pay Points to direct a pay to a particular site. Pay Points can also be used to sort pay advices into areas within a company to make distribution easier.

It is possible to have Pay Points within a Location.

Note: If an employee moves from one Location to another and their code is changed via ‘Change Employee Location/Code’, all their period and year to date totals transfer to the new Location. If this is unsuitable or two separate Tax Certificates for an employee are required, then the employee should be terminated in the original location and set up as a new employee in the new location.
