  1. Select the "Company" tab. The page will default to the "Company Info" tab. Select the tab labeled "Income Types".
  2. Wagepoint Pay is setup with 5 standard income types: Regular Pay, Vacation, Overtime, Final Pay and Bonus. You can add additional income types at any time. If you do not need an income type, you can delete it during setup.
