The Pay Items allow administrators to manage a myriad of monetary components which factor into an employee's pay. They are fully customizable and can either be additional payments or deductible sums.

Pay Items are separated into Categories, CPF type and IR8A codes. Selecting the correct option is integral as this will affect how much CPF you have to pay or how much tax your employees are liable to pay in their yearly IR8A submission.
