In this guide, we will show you how to use the Financial Groups Lookups option within Config>Administration>Lookup Tables, including;
- Creating a new Financial Group
- Linking the Financial Group to a Base Pay Structure
Financial Groups can be selected from within a Base Pay Structure, with the purpose being to duplicate the Base Pay mapping using a different Financial Group. Having multiple Financial Groups allows your MIS to differentiate between the two when mapping the costs.
Access: The minimum permissions required to access this feature are found in the Administration Module of Config>Setup>Role & Permissions.
Pre-requisites: You must have an understanding of staff contracts and Base Pay Structures, there should also be a selection of Base Pay Structures in your MIS.

Any existing Financial Groups will display in a table below, press New to create a new one.
