The Payroll Data Definitions (NO) Extension

If your business uses the Huldt & Lillevik Lønn - Visma payroll service provider in Norway, the Payroll Data Definitions (NO) extension can help you quickly and accurately register payroll transactions from these providers. The extension contains data exchange definitions that enable you to import payroll transactions in files that the providers send to you. For more information about data exchange definitions, see Set Up Data Exchange Definitions.

Getting Started

The first step is to map the types of payroll transactions to the general ledger accounts that you want to post them to in Business Central. For example, you might want to post retirement plan contributions to an account named Pension, and the taxes paid on the contributions to an account named Pension Tax. This happens outside of Business Central, for example, you might use an Excel worksheet to visualize the mapping. Work with the payroll service provider to ensure that the file they export contains the mapping. Typically, you can find information about how to configure export files on the provider's website.

After you install the extension, the next step is to specify the format for the payroll data file from the payroll service provider. To do that, go to the General Ledger Setup page and choose the provider in the Payroll Trans. Import Format field.

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter General Journals, and then choose the related link.
