Payroll Accounting

University Accounting and Financial Reporting (UAFR) is responsible for overseeing payroll accounting functions. These functions include:

  • Posting of payroll to Banner from the payroll system
  • Providing customer service for issues not related to the Human Resources (HR) setup of positions or the actual payroll processing by University Payroll & Benefits (UPB)
  • Accruals related to payroll on the university financial statements

To review payroll data, use Banner form PZILIST. Read the comments for past redistributions, contact info, and other details. Standard reports are available for payroll expenses by person and by month. To review Labor Distribution Data Inquiry, use Banner form NHIDIST.

Labor Redistributions

Labor costs cannot be moved with journal vouchers. Most labor expenses need to be moved with labor redistributions via Banner form PZAREDS.

Fringe Benefits

Fringe benefits are additional costs the University of Illinois System or the employee incurs as a part of their employment.
