In the Settings > Benefits section, two benefit Categories are related to the Voluntary Organisations Project Scheme (VOPS). These are:
- VOPS - Company: This is used when the company is paying the VOPS on behalf of the employee and no deductions are to be made from the employee's salary. This will not show in the payslip but will show in reports and FS3
- VOPS - Employee: This is used when the employee would like to pay part of the VOPS and the relevant amount is deducted from their salary as a post tax deduction. This will show in the payslip, reports and FS3
In certain cases an employee might have VOPS - Company only or VOPS - Employee only, while in some cases you might need to add both.
These benefits will need to be first set up in Settings > Benefits, and given the relevant benefit name that you would like featured on the payslip (where relevant).
The annual amount of this benefit is then to be added to the employee's position history, as deductions, as follows (again, you might have one or the other or both, per employee):

The value added to the employee's position history will show in the FS3 as follows:
