Department Expense Maintenance

The Department Expense Maintenance screen is used to assign a unique code to each department, and to enter the General Ledger account codes associated with each type of department expense.

At least one department MUST be set up.

Typically, a company will set up one department for each G/L payroll expense account, for example, Direct Job Labor, Shop Labor, Estimating Labor, Admin Labor, and Officer Labor; it is not necessary to utilize different General Ledger Accounts for each pay type within a department.
