You’re just about ready! Before Paytient can start making your life easier by automatically pulling employee census data and sending deduction files in a format compatible with your payroll provider, we’ll need you to create a deduction code for Paytient. This needs to be done inside your payroll Administrator Dashboard.

Note: This guide can be used as a resource to create a deduction code in a payroll system that is not listed below:

  • Paylocity

  • Paychex

  • UKG Pro

  • UKG Ready

  • Workday

  • ADP Workforce Now

Since every payroll system is different, this guide may be adding unnecessary or missing necessary steps for your specific system. If you are having trouble with this process, your payroll system support center may be better equipped to help you.

  1. Login as an admin to your payroll Dashboard.

  2. On the side of the screen with the menu, use the search box or look at the menu for an item titled: “Payroll”

  3. Look for a section labeled “Deductions” or “Benefits.”

  4. There should be a button on this screen to add a new benefit/deduction. Click this to start creating a new deduction code.

  5. The next page you are taken to should have some options for classifying what the new deduction is/how it will be used. Please use your best judgment when filling out these fields to classify the code as an employee voluntary, after-tax, non-recurring, non-scheduled deduction.

  6. You will be taken to the next page to set up the deduction description, code, and other options.

    1. Deduction Code: “PAYT”

    2. Description for Paystub: “Paytient”

    3. Each Field with a red * must be filled in to advance to the next page

    4. Frequency: One-time

    5. Value: $0

  7. The next page will confirm the details you entered. Confirm the details are correct and, if applicable, click “Done”
