Calculation of accommodation allowance can be carried out using the Housing benefit calculator in the salary base.
When calculating a new accommodation allowance, start by clicking the New benefit button. Then select the Apartment location (Metropolitan area/Rest of Finland), Apartment construction year, Heating method, Heating responsibility, Right to use electricity, Shared Apartment or not. Then you can fill in the remaining fields.
The Accommodation allowance calculator allows you to calculate the value of the current year’s accommodation allowance only. The calculator can be used for calculating an allowance with the start date in the future or the end date in the past, but it cannot be selected as a salary row if the allowance is not in effect. When the allowance is in effect, it can be selected as a salary row.
The Add to list button adds the entered information in the accommodation allowance list. The list can contain several accommodation allowances, but one person can have only one accommodation allowance in effect. The accommodation allowance periods must not overlap. Before entering a new accommodation allowance, you must enter an end date for the old accommodation allowance.
The Save button saves the accommodation allowance entered in the list.
The Add as salary row button adds the saved accommodation allowance as a salary row.
The Show benefit button shows the information of the selected accommodation allowance row for editing, if needed. When you have finished editing, click the Add to list button. Finally, click the Add as salary row button to update the amendments in the salary slip.
The Delete benefit button deletes the accommodation allowance from the list, if needed.
