Employees can be classified based on function, department, location, cadre/designation and various other parameters using Employee Groups.
In Tally.ERP 9, salary structures can be defined at the Employee Group level itself. For example, you can create the salary structure for a whole department i.e., Marketing, R&D, Sales, Accounts etc.
To create a single Employee Group (e.g. Sales),
Go to Gateway of Tally > Payroll Info. > Employee Groups > Create (under Single Group)
Select the required Employee Category from the List of Categories in the field Category
Enter the Name of the Employee group
Select the required group from the List of Employee Groups in the field Under
Set the option Define Salary Details to Yes and press Enter to view Salary Details Creation screen. In this screen, specify the salary details of the Employee Group
Note: To speed up the entry of individual employee’s pay structure, you can define the pay structure for an Employee Group with pay heads which is applicable for most of the employees and copy the same to individual employees.
If the Salary Details are not defined while creation or alteration of an Employee Group, then the salary structure can be also be defined from Salary Details.
