Last updated on OCTOBER 25, 2023

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne HCM Foundation - Version 9.2 and later
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne US Payroll - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



PDBAs (Pay Types, Deductions, Benefits, and Accruals) are set up to automate the process of adding and/or subtracting money from an employee's paycheck, calculating employee benefits, and tracking accruals when you run a payroll cycle. This document discusses the process of setting up a PDBA.

Pay Types:

You set up pay types to categorize various employee earnings to direct labor to different accounts in the general ledger. You can define up to 999 different pay types, using the range of numbers 001 to 999. For example, most companies need to set up different pay types for holiday, sick, and vacation or personal leave pay.

Setting up pay types also allows you to:

You can also attach a media object to a pay type for explanatory notes or other information. If you attach a text media object to the pay type, the first two lines of text that you enter appear on reports that include the pay type description. When you set up a basic pay type, you define the minimum amount of information that the system needs to perform the calculation.

Payroll DBAs (Deductions, Benefits, and Accruals)

DBAs are typically setup only if you are using the JD Edwards E1 Payroll system. You might set up DBAs without the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Payroll system if you have a customized interface with a payroll service bureau. You set up deductions to automate the process of subtracting money from an employee's paycheck when you run a payroll cycle. Deductions represent monetary amounts, other than taxes, withheld from an employee's earnings.
The system can use different methods to calculate deductions. These methods include:

You can override at the employee level DBAs that are calculated based on flat monetary amounts and percentages.



This document is intended for E1 users who are setting up the Human Resources and Payroll modules for use by their organization.
