Create a pay item group

Updated in November- 2023 | Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

Pay Items groups are the Component Groups in your employees' salary structure. You already view and work with these groups on pages such as Salary and Payroll Difference. For example, Salary Master, Gross, Deductions, and Reimbursement are some of the most commonly used Pay Item groups.

The Pay Item Group page in the greytHR Admin portal displays a list of all the component groups. You can expand the groups to view the items in each group. The page helps you control the groups required to structure your organization's payroll components. The changes you make on this page will reflect throughout the application wherever applicable.

To view the Pay Item Group page, click Payroll > Setup Pay Item Group.

You can perform the following actions on the Pay Item Group page:

  1. Add a new pay item group.

  2. Edit the existing pay item group.

⚠️ We recommend you to contact the greytHR support team before making any changes in settings.
