If needed, you can use salary type Withholding correction in ProCountor to correct the withholding calculated by the system.
Correction of excessive withholding
If you have made excessive withholding from an employee’s salary, you can correct it by using Procountor’s salary type Withholding correction.
The correction can be made in the next salary slip by adding row Withholding correction, where you enter the excessive withholding as a positive sum in the Price field, amount 1 in the Amt field and unit “kpl” in the Unit field. Now, the employee’s net salary increases and tax withholding decreases with that sum.
You can also make the withholding correction as a separate salary slip.
In that case, you create a new salary slip for that employee for the same period (including the payment due date) as that of the erroneous salary slip. This takes the information to the correct period’s tax return, if it has not yet been created. If the tax return of that salary period has already been created, you must create the salary slip for the current period.
When you have selected the person and have his/her information visible in the middle section of the New salary list view, tick the box in column No data and enter a zero in the column Workday.
When you have saved the information, on the Salary list page, click the To person’s statement button, which opens the Salary slip page with no rows. Use the Salary type search button to add the Withholding correction row, where you enter the excessive withholding as a positive sum in the Price field, “1” in the Amt field and “kpl” in the Unit field. This creates a salary slip with the excessive withholding as the net sum, correcting the withholding in the period tax return with the same sum. The salary slip does not affect the employee’s or employer’s contributions. In accounting, the salary slip decreases the withholding and social security debt. As the number or workdays was set to zero, the withholding correction calculation does not affect the holiday calculation.
The salary list is accepted, sent and paid normally.
