If you have many employees, I suggest that a dedicated payroll software package would be more appropriate than Manager. Most payroll systems available in your country should be able to keep up with tax changes, etc
You can always feed the monthly total figures into Manager for accounting purposes and use the Payroll system for payroll administration
I checked the tutorial but I am stuck on one part.
Social security contributions are set in the “Contributions” dropdown. But by law I must show the wage with the Gross and then Net(After the contributions are paid). It looks like the contributions dropdown has no effects on the wage at all. Any idea why please?
Whether Social Security “contributions” are deductions or contributions in Manager’s terminology depends on who is paying them. They may be both. Amounts taken out of an employee’s gross earnings and later paid to the government on behalf of the employee are deductions. Amounts paid by an employer (usually accrued at the time of a payslip and later remitted to the government) are contributions.
Your deduction items are not normally posted to expense accounts, but to liability accounts. They are not an expense of the business. The business’ expense was already accounted for in the earnings payslip item(s). The deduction is setting aside the employee’s money for later remittance to the government.
You should try all this out in a test business to see how it works.
thanks yes what I did is duplicate a payslip till the rest of the year(same salary monthly) and only changed the tax accordingly(month of 4 weeks or 5 weeks). It seems to be working.
You know what would have been nice, the possibility to add code so we can calculate extra things automatically. I know we can edit the HTML, but I am not sure about using variables and use their outputs into the other accounts.
