The Payroll module, which is available a la carte for both the Business Essentials and Advanced Management editions of Microsoft Dynamics SL, makes payroll and benefits administration a smooth, predictable, and timely process. It gives you powerful and flexible capabilities that enable you to operate faster, smarter, and more profitably, and it is all the payroll management most small to mid-sized organizations require. However, if you are in need of advanced or specialized payroll management tools, Microsoft Dynamics SL also offers Payroll—Advanced, similarly available a la carte for both the Business Essentials and Advanced Management editions.
The Advanced Payroll module requires the purchase of the base Payroll module, and significantly extends your payroll functionality. It takes the guesswork out of complex labor and time collection, and enables you to calculate true labor costs, meet time-sensitive government reporting requirements, provide flexible deductions and benefits, and most importantly, pay your employees accurately and on time.
You can enter time for complex payrolls, including for both union and non-union employees, in the same payroll. Data is defaulted for labor class, union code, shift differential, pay rate, and other categories, based on your employee definitions. You can also pay wage premiums for different shifts, accrue fringe benefits, pay prevailing wages or wages based on skill type, and deduct union and membership dues, all in the same payroll run. Define an unlimited number of fringe benefits and union and membership deduction codes.
An extensive set of payroll reporting tools can provide information to managers, government agencies, and tax boards. Define reports as needed to meet special requirements when reporting earnings and deductions to union locals. When a job is defined as a certified project, reporting of certified payrolls is fully supported.
