Note: The tip automation rule 'Cash tips paid with payroll' setting has the following impacts on 'Tips Owed':
  • If the 'Cash tips paid with payroll' setting is enabled, this amount will be Total Tips - Tips Out 

  • If the 'Cash tips paid with payroll' setting is not enabled, this amount will be Total Tips - Tips Out - Declared Tips


Note: The minimum amount for tips owed is $0.00. A negative tips owed amount will result in a contribution shortfall that will be carried over to future distributions in the 'Balance Applied' column. This does not impact the total amount distributed to receiving employees.
