Allowance – Deduction Report

Details Overview

The Allowance – Deduction report within the Administration menu of the SapphireOne Payroll/HR mode provides reports for Allowances or Deductions only.

When printing employee reports, the user should be aware that SapphireOne will assume that it is to print the selected report on all Employees that are currently active in SapphireOne. This may be from just a few employees but could extend to hundreds or even thousands of them.

When the Allowance – Deduction report is selected from the Administration menu, SapphireOne will present a print dialog screen as seen below for the user to select and customise the criteria and data they would like included within the report.
