Each cost center is associated with a Checking Account (as defined in General Ledger).

By assigning multiple checking accounts to cost centers, you can pay employees from multiple accounts. However, if you are using separate checking accounts on one payroll check, the checking accounts must be part of the same physical bank account. You can not cross banks in a single transaction.

Example: You have an employee who works in the Church Office 25 hours per week as a secretary and 15 hours per week in the Church Day Care as an attendant. The Church Office and the Church Day Care pay their employees from separate checking accounts; therefore, you set up the following cost centers:


Expense Account

Checking Account




Day Care Attendant




To pay the employee from the checking accounts shown above, simply distribute the appropriate number of hours for each cost center used when you enter Pay Types in the employee's record.
