Pay Type

The Pay Type field in AP Transaction Entry, Lines section, Info tab.


Specify the pay type for this item. If you are using pay categories (flag in AP Company Parameters), defaults the pay from this line's pay category based on the line type. The pay type used for each line type is as follows:

  • Job lines - Use the Job pay type

  • Inv, Exp, Equip, and EM Work Order lines - Use the Expense pay type

  • PO lines - Use the pay type assigned to the PO item.

  • SL lines - Use the Subcontract pay type

  • SM Work Order lines - Use the SM Work Order pay type

If you allow pay type overrides (flag in AP Company Parameters), you may override the default.

If you are using pay categories, the pay type must be either assigned to the specified pay category (in AP Pay Category) or an 'unassigned' pay type (a pay type that has not been restricted to a pay category in AP Payable Types). If you are not using pay categories, you can specify any pay type, regardless of whether the pay type is restricted to a pay category.
Note: You can only enter a pay type that is not designated for retainage in AP Company Parameters or for a pay category in AP Pay Category.
