  1. Account numbers can also be broken down per project by adding the code [PROJ] in the account number structure. Please contact the Support Centre for assistance.
  2. If you want to extract all data on the various medical aids available in the company, ensure that the General Ledger numbers and contra account numbers are specified on every medical aid payroll fund. This will enable you also break the account numbers down per medical aid fund. The code [MED] can be used in the account number structure.
  3. Account numbers can also be broken down per employee code by adding the code [EMP] in the account number structure.
