How do I allocate a cost?

Now that your Cost Analysis Structure is set up, you can set up rules within Cintra iQ, according to how you want your costs to be analysed when you extract Cost Analysis data. The rule set up is based on pay elements.
You can also group multiple pay elements together under a costing category so that you can apply cost analysis rules to categories of pay elements rather than individual pay elements.
Cost Allocations are used when a particular payment item or category (a category is used to group payment items that will behave in the same way) will be assigned to a different cost code account and/or department from the employee’s default account.
