Solution

The Annexure I of Form 24Q was reporting total taxable income. NSDL has released an FVU 3.9, according to which it has been establised that the for the deductee details (Form 24Q – Annexure I), name of the field “Taxable amount of which tax deducted” has been changed to “Amount paid/Credited”.

Therefore SAP will now report the Gross income (/416) of the employee in Annexure I instead of the total taxable income (/434) NSDL has also clarified that the “Taxable amount on which tax deducted” in Deductee details in all four quarters need not match with the “Total Taxable income” figure shown in the Annexure II (salary details)

While executing payroll (TCode: PC00_M40_CALC) for employees working in your organization, if the employee has died before completing senior or very senior citizen age, income tax is getting calculated incorrectly.

For senior and very senior citizens, separate income tax slabs apply for tax calculation. However, these slabs are applicable in case employee reaches a certain age as defined by the Government. If an employee dies before he reaches the senior/ very senior citizen age, the system still calculates tax as per senior/ very senior slabs. This behavior is incorrect.

For reference:Employee ‘X’ reaches 60 years (Sr. citizen) of age on 01.09.2013 and he dies on 31.05.2013. In this case, when payroll is run for May 2013, income tax is being calculated with slabs used for senior citizen. This is incorrect, as the employee died before he completed 60 years of age.

Priority Correction with high priority

You are executing payroll driver HINCALC0 (Tcode:PC00_M40_CALC_SIMU) for employees working in your organization in the region of Jharkhand.

While you are executing payroll, an inconsistent amount of ptax is been deducted in case of employee joining Jharkhand region in mid-year.

For Reference:


Consider a scenario, where the employee is transfered to Jharkhand region in October and is liable to pay PTax of Rs.1800 professional tax. When the payroll is run, the amount that the employee is liable to pay, gets reduced to 900 as the employee is transfered to Jharkhand in October.

So in this case, the ptax amount gets calculated as = 900 / 6 = 150.
This is observed as inconsistent behaviour. The PTax liability is dependent of the return value of the feature 40PTB.

You are exectuing t-code PC00_M40_F24Q for employees in your company.You have processed off-cycle payroll runs for the employee for some period.In the same period you have executed the off-cycle two times to make some payments to the employee.

In such a scenario you are using the payroll identifier to distinguish between the two offcycle runs for the same day payment. The challan mapping has been done for the employee, still when F24q report is executed all the results of the period are not displayed, for the particular quarter with offcycle runs.

In such scenario the results displayed are inconsistent in F24Q.

For Example:

1. You are using offcycle payroll type for some payments to be made in May period dated on 26.5.2012 using Wagetype X.

2. In the same period you want to run the offcycle twice on the same date,i.e., 26.05.2012

3. For the second offcycle run on the same day 31.05.2012 you are usingWagetype Y. In such scenario you want the second payroll run should have

separate record in the payroll cluster.

4. In such a scenario you enter ‘1’ in the payroll identifier to separate both the payroll runs, during the payroll is being processed.The second offcycle run is stored with an unique identifier for same day payment and generates a separate record for the same. By default for the first offcycle run ‘space’ is stored as an identifier.

5. Then the described example displays inconsistency in F24Q reporting.

Leave encashment is the amount payable for the employee’s leave period, depending upon the leaves to his credit and his salary at the time of

termination of employment or at the time of encashing his leaves.

Employees can avail exemption on leave encashment amount on the basis of

minimum of 4 values:

– Exemption limit

– Payment received

– Average monthly salary for a predefined no. of months multiplied by a multiplication factor.

– Average monthly salary for a predefined no. of months multiplied by remaining no. of leaves (in months).

As per govt. rules, in case an employee claims for leave encashment during his tenure of service, payment received for it should be considered as taxable. Also, it subsequently gets considered while calculating HRA basis as well. However, on executing the payroll (TCode:PC00_M40_CALC_SIMU) currently, payment amount is not being considered for forming HRA basis.

Currently system has provision for Professional tax for Kerala state under the region code 11. However as per the Kerala Panchayat Raj Act , each panchayat can have its own slab rates.

 

Hence a provision is provided in the system where it is possible to create  region codes for different Panchayats where specific slab rates can be maintained.


1.Within Kerala state there can be multiple Panchayats and each will have its own slab rates. Keeping this in view we have provided an option to be able to configure new region codes in the system.

2.The calculation logic for Professional tax calculation is half yearly and for the first half of the year (April to September) calculation of professional tax is performed in July. If there is any additional tax is applicable the same is deducted in August / September for the first half year. For the second half (October to March) calculation of professional tax is performed in January. If there is any additional tax is applicable the same is deducted in February / March for the second half of the year.


3.If there is transfer among different Panchayats within Kerala the already Paid out Ptax will be adjusted for calculation of professional tax that employee has to final pay for the block of six months.


4.Slab rates for one new region code that will be configured in system are as follows Slab Half yearly income (Rs) Maximum half yearly tax (Rs)

1 from 12,000 to 17,999 120

2 from 18,000 to 29,999 180

3 from 30,000 to 44,999 300

4 from 45,000 to 59,999 450

5 from 60,000 to 74,999 600

6 from 75,000 to 99,999 750

Following inconsistencies are observed while generating Form 16 (Tcode: PC00_M40_F16) for employees of your oranization:

1. Payroll has been processed for an employee for different months and tax is deducted for the months. You have only mapped the challan for    few months. In such a case the last month with mapped challan details is getting populated for the rest of the months for which payroll is processed and tax is deducted.

Payroll is processed for 01 to 06 period and each period has tax  deduction. However the challan mapping is done only for 01 and 02 period. In such case, in form 16 period 03 to 06 also is populated with May challan details.

2. Payroll has been processed for an employee for a Financial Year. You have implemented AFY solution at your organization. While you are      generating Form 16 for such an employee, Form 16 is not displayed.  This happens because if FY for which Form 16 is being generated is  not a leap year FY end date is taken as 29.02.XXXX.

3. Payroll has been processed for an employee for a Financial Year. When an employee has been rehired, the Perquisite amounts in Form 12BA in Form 16 has been found inconsistent.

 

You have activated AFY at your organization. You are generating Form 16 of an employee for FY 2012-2013. In this case, FY dates shall come as 01.03.2012 to 28.02.2013. However, end date is picked up as 29.02.2013 which is inconsistent.
