Why is there a pro-rata percentage on my payslip?
A pro-rata percentage is calculated automatically for salaried employees whenever a payslip is not for a full month. This usually occurs in one of three situations:
- The employee started employment during the month.
- The employee’s service ended during the month.
- The employee worked for a full calendar month but your pay frequency ends on a day other than the last day of the month.
How is the pro-rata percentage calculated?
SimplePay calculates the pro-rata percentage as days worked / working days in month x 100.
How do I change the pro-rata calculation used?
You may wish to pay an employee their full salary even though they did not work the full period. You can do this by overriding the pro-rata percentage to 100.
