Burden is the actual cost of a company to have an employee. Aside from salary, there are other factors - health insurance, pension costs, payroll taxes - that contribute to the total cost of employing an individual.


Burden is calculated and stored at the Transaction level during Payroll & Accounting Period Close Process. A burden cannot however be applied retroactively to transactions that were created prior to the burden being created.


Navigate to Start Page > Actions menu > Admin Tools > Burden Factor to view, edit, and add burdens to a specific transaction type in the system.
