The Deductions Report for File Sync shows changes to employees' deductions for their benefits, such as health insurance or commuter benefits. Example information in the report includes:
- Type of benefit
- Per-period employee and employer contributions (with maximums, if any)
- Effective dates (start and end)
- Payroll ID, this is used in place of employee name
The deductions report list payroll IDs, not employee names.
After initial setup for Payroll Report or File Sync is complete, the first generated Deductions Report will list all known deductions for all deductions, regardless of recent changes, to ensure that the amounts in Zenefits match the amounts in payroll. All subsequent Deduction Reports will only show changes to employees' deductions. These changes should be entered into payroll.
