- You can create multiple Agencies in the agency section.
- You have the option of setting up an agency type of Staffing, Supplier Vendor, or Deduction Authorities.

Once Employees are assigned to an order, generate transactions for your two employees. Add hours, and then close the time entry batch.
Go to payroll and select your transactions into a batch. Process, print, and post the batch.
After the payroll batch for employees posts, create a second payroll batch. In the new payment batch wizard, make sure you select Deduction Authority Pay as the run type. Select transactions to view items to select (amounts of the deductions).
Process the payroll batch and view the checks
- For an agency that has separate checks configured, there should be individual checks for each deduction type.
- For an agency that does not have separate checks configured, there should be one Check. The net amount should equal the sum of deductions for that employee.
