It seems to me that the salary payment system isn’t fully actualized yet, with respect to paying employees. It looks like the only way to do a payment is through the Payroll Processing system, and that creates a single JV for all the salaries going out. This is OK if you’re sending the money to a bank for processing, but if you’re doing it yourself it and need to print cheques or do e-transfers into all your employee accounts, it doesn’t work so well.
It seems to me that you should be able to create Payment Entries to Employees and pull in Expenses and Salary Slips.
Am I missing something or would this be a desirable feature? I’m happy to develop it if needed.
