In this step, you assign expense accounts to the symbolic accounts used for expense postings (account assignment type C) or for expense postings without number field in the payroll results (account assignment type CN).
Expense accounts are often assigned according to the employee grouping for account determination.

The same symbolic account is to be used with G/L account Wages (430000) for employees in the employee grouping for account determination with the value 2.
