Overview

Cost centre reallocation profiles allow you to split cost reports per cost centre when running payroll. For example, if an employee’s labour cost is divided 40-60 percent by two different cost centres, you can set up Indigo Payroll to reallocate these costs in reports. 

To set up reallocation profiles in Indigo Payroll, you need to first enable the feature in the permissions page. You can then create reallocation profiles and assign them to employees. 

After you have done this step, you can create a reallocation profile and assign them to the employee.


Enabling reallocation profiles in permissions

  1. In Indigo, go to Administration > Main > Permission Sets

  2. Click on the Unassigned Permissions tab at the top right corner.

  3. Type ReallocationProfile in the code field and click on the HR_ReallocationProfile permission when it comes up in the unassigned permissions list.

  4. Click on Insert (+ icon) in the toolbar. 

  5. Select all permissions in the Permissions pop-up window.

  6. Click Save.

Turning on reallocations

After enabling the HR_ReallocationProfile permission, you can turn on reallocations in the Calculation Settings page of Payroll settings.

  1. In Indigo, go to Payroll & Leave > Main > Settings.

  2. In the left sidebar, click on Payroll, and then click on Calculation Settings.

  3. Click on Edit (pencil icon), in the toolbar.

  4. Tick the boxes for the reallocation settings you want: Allocate by Cost Centre, Re-allocate by Cost Centre, and Employee percentage reallocation.

  5. Click Save.

Please note that you may need to log out and log back in to your Indigo account in order for the Reallocation Profile tab to appear in the Payroll Setup section.
