The Allowance and Deduction Manager enables the addition or deduction of payroll allowances and deductions from an employee's pay and facilitates the creation of any allowance type including super co-contributions, back pay, tax allowances, and travel allowances. Templates are created as a bucket of allowances to then be applied to and modified, if needed, for groups of individuals (As opposed to creating lots of individual templates for each allowance)
