  6. The next field is the Deduction Option field which allows you to choose the Amount or the Percentage that is to be deducted
  7. GL expense and liability codes can also be entered in the following two fields if necessary
  8. Click on the orange Create button to create the Deduction Type
  9. You can now assign this Deduction Type to employees by clicking on the People tab
