Payslip wage code description

The description of a wage component can be changed, this description will then be shown on the payslip.

The description of an hour code can also be changed, but an hour code is never reflected on the payslip. An hour code has output on a wage component, in this case you will also have to change the corresponding wage component.


Below please find an example of an hour code and the corresponding wage component. If you only need to change the description of a wage component, you can skip the first part.
