Reducing balance deductions

A reducing balance deduction is a regular deduction with a ‘balance’ to be paid. Each pay period a deduction is made, and the balance decreases. Once the balance reaches zero, the deduction stops automatically.

For example, John has a court fine of $500. You can create a deduction with a balance of $500, and set the deduction amount at $100 per pay. After five deductions the balance reaches $0 and the deductions stop automatically.

You'll set up the deduction for one employee, but you can then assign it to other employees and set a different deduction amount.
