Pays in PayHero are all generated through the use of pay items. These are the basis of any Earnings, Deductions, Reimbursements, Superannuation contributions and Payments that could apply to an employee's pay run. Each line in the pay is associated with a pay item, and the pay item settings define how the pay line will be processed.
You can view, edit and create new pay items from the Manage > Pay Items tab.
A number of default pay items come included with your PayHero Company. Those with a padlock next to their name are permanent and cannot be edited or deleted. Any other pay items without a padlock can be edited or archived as needed.
The following are five available types of pay items in PayHero, each with a different use.
There are four main Earnings pay item categories in PayHero; Regular, Other, Bonus, and Discretionary. These represent payments made to the employee that are categorised as either a Gross Earning or a Taxable Allowance.

Reimbursement pay items can be used to compensate employees for employment-related expenses without incurring tax.

Deduction pay items will trigger a reduction of the employee's total post-tax take home pay. Deductions can occur for reasons including Student Loan Repayments, KiwiSaver, Child Support, IRD Arrears, Court Fines or repaying a debt owed to the employer or a third party.

Superannuation pay items represent contributions into a superannuation fund. PayHero includes KiwiSaver Employer Contribution as a default but you can create custom contributions as necessary.
