Bill Amount = $12.00

Gross Wages  = $8.00

Wc Cost        = $0.50

ER Tax = $0.50

Profit  = $12.00- (($8.00 * burden rate )+ $0.50 + $0.50) = $3.00

Geocoding is the computational process of transforming a description of a location (usually represented by a postal address) to a location on the Earth's surface in the form of a numerical coordinate. A computer can recognize a specific spot on the earth based on a geocode.


A precise address must be entered into the Avionté application so the system can accurately determine the geocode for the address. As an example, when an address is entered for an employee, contact, etc., and a suggested geocode is not populated, the entered city may be that of a nearby large city, when the actual, precise city is a suburb of the larger city. 


Applications like Avionté and Vertex use geocodes to identify a location then determine the tax withholdings for the employee and the employer to ensure correct tax payment.

Example 1: The employer has 13 fulltime employees and 52 fulltime equivalent employees. This employer is required to offer all fulltime employees insurance or pay an employee. However, since they only have 13 fulltime employees, they would not have to pay a penalty because 13 fulltime employees – 30 would leave no employees left to pay the penalty on.

Example 2: The employer has 33 fulltime employees. They would have to pay the penalty on 3 employees if they decided not to offer insurance.



Professional Employment Organization.



Though the term "platform" can mean multiple things in software, when the word is used in the term "Aero Platform," it is referring to the environment in which a piece of Avionté software is executed. The Aero platform is built upon data that was previously only available in the Avionté Suite application. That data is currently shared between the Suite application and the Aero platform. Think of the Aero platform as an extension of the Avionté Suite application. While the Suite application and Aero platform are currently used simultaneously, Avionté is moving toward the use of only the Aero platform.  


PO Number

The number specific to a project (usually government project). In Avionté, there are two ways in which the PO number can be tracked and have it displayed in the invoice. One way to track the PO number is to enter it in the order extra. And hence the number gets displayed in the invoice but doesn't do anything beyond that. It includes total amount of budget allocated for the project along with some warning value/date. When the warning value or date is reached, it notifies the service rep.

Total Adjustment Bill

Total Adjustment Bill refers to any transaction of type isDeduction=1 that doesn’t add up to the Bill Amount.

For example:

Reg 40 * 10= $400.00 (isDeduction=0)

OT 1 * 20= $20.00 (isDeduction=0)

Perd. 10 * 10= $100.00 (isDeduction=1)

Mil. 1 * 20= $20.00 (isDeduction=1) --------


Bill Amount = $400.00 + $20.00= $420.00

Total Adjustment Bill = $100.00 + $20.00= $120.00

Total Bill = Bill Amount + Total Adjustment Bill = $540.00


Total Adjustment Cost

Sum of Gross Wages, Agency Cost, WC Cost, Employer taxes and Burden


Total Adjustment Pay

Total Adjustment Pay refers to any transaction of type is Deduction=1 that doesn’t add up to the Gross Wages.

Total Bill

The sum of Bill Unit times Bill Rate. It is also referred to as the sum of the Item Bill.

Suppose, Bill Rate= $15.00 Bill Unit= $20.00

Then, Total Bill = Bill Rate * Bill Unit = $15.00 * 20.00 = $300.00

In other words, Total Bill is the sum of Bill Amount and Total Adjustment Bill.

Total Bill= Bill Amount + Total Adjustment Bill


Total Bill with Discount

Total bill after deducting discount amount.


Total Cost

Total Cost refers to the total expense amount that is incured for the sales made. Suppose, the staffing company had to drug test all the employees to be sent to say Client XYZ and the total cost for the drug test is $50 out of which only $25 can be billed to the client, then the total cost appears to be $50.


Total Deductions

Total amount deducted from the paycheck.


Total Pay

The sum of Pay Unit times Pay Rate. It is also referred to as the sum of the Item Pay.

Suppose, Pay Rate= $15.00 Pay Unit= $20.00

Then, Total Pay = Pay Rate * Pay Unit = $15.00 * 20.00 = $300.00

In other words, Total Pay is the sum of Pay Amount and Total Adjustment Pay.

Total Pay = Pay Amount + Total Adjustment Pay 


Total Taxes

Total employee taxes deducted from the paycheck.



An activity that involves a financial exchange. Assignment record for a given accounting period. A single transaction can have multiple items.

Avionté categorizes these transactions into usable "Transaction Types."

This employee could be expected to work 40 hours the first 12 weeks, but be unknown for the remaining 9 months of the initial measurement period.




Web Service

By default, the week worked is same as the accounting period, but the customer can specify another day to be the week worked from within the Customer Sales and Service section.

Worker Comp Cost (Wc Cost)

Usually the Wc cost is Rate x Gross Wages in the simpliest form. But if the transaction includes overtime or double time, then see the formula below.
Table 1. Wc Cost = Pay Unit/Multiplier * Pay Rate * Wc Rate
Type Pay Unit Pay Rate Wc Code Rate Calc. Method Calculation Total
Reg 40 $10.00 MN 8810 0.2 Pay Unit * Pay Rate* Rate 40*10*0.2 $80.00
OT 2 $20.00 MN 8811 0.2 (Pay Unit/1.5) * Pay Rate * Rate (2/1.5) * 20 * 0.2 $5.34
