Payroll Point Portal has several global settings that allow clients to customize the result output from Portal.


Global settings affect all users in your organization. Review and adjust your company’s global settings in Payroll Point before running any tax lookups, as these settings affect how taxes are returned.

If set to "Not Required", only taxes applicable to courtesy withholding will be returned.
Batch ProcessingUse address suggestionsWhen enabled, if an invalid address is provided in a batch line, Payroll Point will use the first suggested address that closely matches the input address instead of returning an error. If no suggested address is found, Payroll Point will geocode based on the ZIP code. Read more about this functionality in Symmetry's Client Support Center.
