Insurance Accrual - Allocate to Projects

Is anyone allocation insurance to their projects through payroll or through projects? Looking to allocate GL insurance based on a % of gross with a weekly cap per employee. I was thinking to utilize an additional Benefit Code on the WCC Codes, but I get an error stating an attempt was made to add a duplicate entry when I try to create the code as associated with Work Class Comp.

If it’s not associated with WCC, you get an error adding it to the WCC code stating the Code doesn’t exist. 


Any thoughts? Is allocation rules a better route?

I think this would be a good product enhancement idea.

It’s common in Projects, to use Project Allocation Rules to distribute payroll burden across projects based on the Labor Hours  posted to the projects. Here is an example where we apply an extra $7.50 per hour to the Projects for each hour of Labor coming through on the timesheets:

Project Allocation Rule: BURDEN

On the Allocation Settings, you can choose whether to post the burden to projects only, or to create a GL entry to move costs out of Payroll Insurance, for example, and into a Project Cost/expense account.

@Laura02 Thanks, that solves a different problem for me :-)


For GL insurance allocation, I suppose you could use WC code as a trigger for the allocation?    This would create 5-10 allocation rules?

Hello Jeremy,

You may only need 1 Allocation Rule for insurance.The Allocation Rule I showed above is basic with hard-coded $7.50 per hour rate. Allocation Rules can do so much more -- they’re very flexible!! 

Consider adding an Allocation Rules that uses Rate Lookup Rules.  Using the Rate Types, Tables, and Rate Lookup Rules, Acumatica can assign different rates to different employees, projects, tasks, account group, and/or labor item.  This example from Sales Demo is automatically determining rates that changed based on the position (Labor Item) attached to employees.

The above idea is another project allocation, with option to post to the Project or to both GL and the project.
