The salary base is used as the basis for the person's salary slips. The system calculates the salary information to the salary base automatically from the information entered in the Edit person's salary info view. The person information comes directly from the business partner register.
The salary base is used as the basis for the person’s salary slips. Therefore, the salary base is not meant to be edited for each salary payment. If there is no need to change information, you do not need to save the Salary base separately for a new employee. Changes made for an existing employee in the Edit person’s salary info view do not need to be saved in the Salary base.
The basic rows that come automatically to the Salary base (Base salary, Tax withholding, Unemployment insurance fee and Pension fee) are displayed in grey font and cannot be edited or deleted. When you are creating a single salary slip, you can remove those rows from that, if needed. The basic rows are created from the person’s salary information, tax information, current effective unemployment insurance fee and employee pension fee. The salary base rows are affected by the options selected in the person’s Employee info and by the person’s age. For example, if the person is under 17, no unemployment insurance fee or employee pension fee is withheld. See details on how the information in the person’s Employee info view affects the Salary base: Person’s Salary info - where does it affect.
The Payment info section contains the tax card type, salary gross and net sums, and employer’s payments. The default value in the Accumulated tax days field is 30 if the person’s tax card type is Tax card A - Cumulative. You can open or close a Person’s info and Payment info sections by the button in the section’s top right corner.
Note! Holiday rights are accumulated by the base salary rows only. For a person with a monthly salary, only the base salary row is included in holiday rights calculation. For a person with an hourly salary, salary rows Hourly salary, Additional work and Overtime compensation base are included in holiday rights calculation. Other salary types are not considered in holiday rights calculation.
The functions in the view
The Salary type search button allows you to search salary types from the salary type register to add to the salary base.
- It is convenient to add regularly used salary types to the Salary base. These include e.g. mobile phone allowance, company car allowance or accommodation allowance or trade union fee. You can select one or more salary types from the salary type register, which you want to add to the salary base. You can select several salary types using the Ctrl and Shift keys. When you have selected the salary types, click the Add as salary row button.
- You can also search salary types in the list by salary type name, salary type, or salary type group. When you have entered the search criteria, click the Search salary types button.
- You can edit the row information. You can modify the salary type text as you like, e.g. add specifications. Modifications of the texts do not affect the reports, accounting or notifications to authorities. You can change the Amount, Unit and Price (if not defined by Payment-%) as required. The values in the Total columns cannot be edited, because they are the product of the Amount and Price. You can change the Payment-% as you like and it affects the Price.
You can remove an erroneous salary row by selecting the row and clicking the Delete row button.
If the employee has either a company car allowance or an accommodation allowance, you can either use the rows from the salary type register, where you add the value of the allowance, or apply the accommodation allowance or Company car allowance calculators.
When you have entered all the information in the salary base, click the Save button. Now you can create the actual salary slip for the person in section New salary list.
