Year-End is a great time to review your accumulators to ensure they’re set correctly for all earnings, deductions, and benefits.
In Avanti, accumulators collect values from selected codes for formula calculations, such as vacation pay, WCB, and service hours. By selecting an accumulator on a specific code, the amount/units for that code in that pay period are put into a ‘bucket’ which can be used in formulas and reports.
In this article, the following accumulators will be reviewed:
