A withholding payment deduction is an optional feature, not available by default. To make this function available you will need to first turn it on via your company user group settings.
Navigate over to "Company Settings", then "Company Users". Select "Group Functions" on the right-hand side. Enable "Withholding Payment".
Note: This option is generally reserved for special payments such as director's fees. If you are employing a contractor, follow our "How to set up a Contractor" guide instead.
Entering a Withholding Payment
From home, navigate over to "Time & Income", select "Withholding Payment" under "More Income and Deductions".
After ensuring you have chosen the correct employee, select "Add".
Select a "Description" from the dropdown menu and, if required, add a free-format description. Next enter an "Amount" (the total amount that you need to deduct withholding tax from), and then a "Tax Rate".
After you select "Save", this addition will be recorded under "More Income & Deductions."
