Direct Earnings Attachments (DEA) in Pegasus Opera 3
The deduction amount for this new attachment order is calculated by using a table of bandwidths and
percentages for weekly and monthly paid employees supplied by the Department for Work & Pensions(DWP). In some circumstances the DWP will allow an alternative fixed amount to be deducted.
Two new options are available on the Deduction Profile
form (accessed from the Payroll - Maintenance menu)
for the DEA attachment order:
• (DEA) - Table.
• (DEA) - Fixed.
The deductions should be described on the deduction
profile as either ‘DEA Table’ or ‘DEA Fixed’ so that they
are displayed on payslips appropriately.
