Please note that TAM does not have a true payroll function, but simply a payroll reporting function.
For information on payroll on V6.3.0, refer to Tracking your Payroll through TAM (V6.3.0).
For information on payroll on V6.0.3, refer to Tracking your Payroll through TAM (V6.0.3).
This is NOT a payroll program. It will not figure out your payroll taxes. This is used only for reporting payroll data that has already been entered into TAM. You are just telling the program the account numbers you use when doing payroll. It can then generate reports from your data.
This document will cover three main sections:
To enter a payroll check for an employee, you must have the required payroll accounts set up in your General Ledger. The accounts below are presented as samples only; your GL accounts numbers may vary.
To install these accounts:
|231||Federal Tax Withholding||A||2||20|
|232||State Tax Withholding||A||2||20|
|230||FICA Tax Withholding||A||2||20|
|632||State Unemployment Ins.||A||5||60|
|631||Fed. Unemployment Ins.||A||5||60|
|233||Employer Tax Withholding||A||2||20|
|630||FICA Tax Expense||A||5||60|
Go to Top
Access the Payroll Reports Setup option from DOSTAM-UT-6-2.
Note: Payroll must be an actual check to pull into reports. Miscellaneous Disbursements do not display.
|Federal Withholding Taxes||231|
|State Withholding Taxes||232|
|Social Security Withholding Taxes||230|
|Unemployment Insurance - State||632|
|Unemployment Insurance - Federal||631|
|Employee FICA Expense||630|
|Medicare Withholding Taxes|
|Employer FICA Withholding||233|
Note: On payroll for V6.2.0 and above, leave these fields blank. As of V6.2.0, Social Security and Medicare expense are not broken out on the payroll reports. To track these entries, run the schedules report.
The above accounts are just examples. You may enter up to 10 Wage Expense Accounts. This is the account that offsets the gross. If account number are not entered into this area of the reports installation, $0 balances will pull into the gross fields on the payroll reports.
|County Tax Withheld||235|
|Insurance Group Health||621|
Again, the above are just examples. You may have up to 10 additional withholding accounts.
Note: Additional Withholding appears as a lump sum on the reports, not broken down individually by account. If you need this option, please set up a schedule for the individual lines.
Additional Withholding accounts must be set up for each state you have payroll in. When setting up Additional Withholding Accounts you will need to specify the type of withholding. The following are the choices to choose from:
State IL Illinois
Subtract tax deferred deductions from:
You would have to enter for each state in which your employees live. Reports can be run for one or all agencies. in WinReports, run the Reports-General Ledger-Payroll report. Select Payroll History orQuarterly Payroll Report. In DOSTAM, access GL-9 Payroll Reports.
Go to Top
Follow these steps to enter a payroll check:
Note: Youmust use consistent schedule descriptions or the data that appears on the Schedule reports will be inconsistent and meaningless. We recommend that you use the initials of the person for whom you are making the entry, a dash, and then dash a description of the items that make up the disbursement (NET, GROSS, FICA, STATE, etc.). If you have more that one employee with the initials, you may have to use numbers in the schedule description (TJ1-NET, for example). Refer to the section Typical Offset Accounts for an Employee Check for an sample check.
Note: While you can separately break out Social Security and Medicare on the check, they are being offset to the same account and will file as lump sum on the Payroll History report. To run a report of their separate breakdowns, run a Schedules report for that particular schedule.
|102||07/10/00||TJ-NET||Operating Cash Account||1210.75|
|233||07/10/00||TJ-FICA||Employer's Withholding (FICA)||114.75|
|630||07/10/00||TJ-FEXP||FICA Tax Expense||114.75|
Note: Social Security and Medicare are offsetting the same account for reporting purposes. A journal entry can be entered to break out this account. If account 232 is Medicare, you can make a journal entry from Social Security with Holding (230) to track the breakdown in the GL.
