|'S'tatutory Deduction||DR/CR||PC Account Distributions|

A detailed list of Employer Costs and a grand total of the costs.
A total and a list of totals by account of the Earnings used for Cost Distribution calculations. These earnings are totalled from the time transaction records if their pay code's 'Not Pro-rated' is not checked. Earnings that should not be included in this grand total would typically be Vacation Pay Advances/Payouts as the amounts would have been costed-out in a prior period when it was generated and is not to be considered a cost when being paid-out. The Pay Code used for the Vacation Pay Advances should be flagged as 'Not Pro-rated' to not be included in this total.
