Employees are to be created as “vendors”
Employee payments covered are of the following nature :

Personal Cheque Encashment.
Any kind of advance paid
Reimbursement of expenses.
Payment of wages (at factories only).
Payment of Perks / allowances

Cash is paid against receipt of employees personal cheques. For these cheques receipt will be accounted through “incoming payments from Vendor”  F-52 .

The entries will be :
Vendor Account (employee) A/c        Dr
To Cash Pool                Cr
(Cash paid against personal Cheque)

Bank A/c                    Dr
To Vendor Account (employee) A/c        Cr
(After banking the cheque and making entry for cheque receipt )

Cash will be paid to employees as advance against travel, Salary or festival. This payment will be booked to employee vendor account in Cash Journal (FBCJ).

Vendor Account (employee) A/c    Dr
To Cash Pool                Cr

The cashier also need to pass a Transfer Posting entry in F-51 with a “special GL Indicator”. The Special GL indicator is used to identify various types of advances made. This posting will transfer the Debit from Employee Vendor account to advances account. Even though it is transferred from employee vendor control account, it can still be tracked with the employee vendor.

Settlement of advances can happen through :

Travel expense voucher.
Partial cash return & remaining through expense voucher.
Payment return through cheque.
Deduction from salary.

The settlement of vouchers will be booked as employee vendor invoices. The travel expense settlement process will result either into “refund from” or “payment to” the employee either by cash or cheque. Cash refund “from or to employee” can be done through cash journal.

Further, Advance account has to be cleared with the expenses booking voucher using session F-44
