    AR2024 does allow you to remove payroll categories from an employee's card. The exception is if the payroll categories has been used in timesheets. So users who don't use timesheets are not affected by this issue. My guess from your comments is you use timesheets.


    That said, if a payroll category is no longer required in the file, it can be removed using specialist software (even if it was used in a timesheet) - get in touch with MYOX Services as this is something they can do. Probably only worth it if you have several hundred to remove.
