Note:

Before implementing this note you must apply the Note 2094637 and the attached manual instructions for creating the constant TAXRO, hence there is no manual instruction for the current note.

  1. The provisions of rounding of taxable income and income tax components are provided under an existing constant ‘TAXRO’ in the table V_T511K with values ‘0’,’1′,’2′ and ‘3’.

The behavior for value ‘0’, ‘1’ was introduced in the Note 2094637. As part of the current note ‘2’ & ‘3’ is supported from Year 01.04.2014 onwards.

  1. The TAXRO will be created for FY 2014-15 i.e. from 01.04.2014 till 31.12.9999.
  2. The below table explains the combination of values for the constant TAXRO and the rounding behavior of the tax components.
Wage Type TAXRO = ‘0’ TAXRO =  ‘1’                      TAXRO = ‘2’            TAXRO = ‘3’
/434 – Taxable income Rounded to INR.’10’ Rounded to INR.’10’

Upper rounded to INR.’1′ in case last digit of /434 is less than ‘5’

Rounded to INR.’10’ in case last digit of /434 is equal to ‘5’ or more.

Not rounded
/446 – Tax payable   Not rounded   Not rounded     Not rounded     Not rounded
/447 – Sec and Higher Educ cess Rounded to INR.’1′ Rounded to INR.’1′     Not rounded Not rounded
/448 – Surcharge payable Rounded to INR.’1′ Rounded to INR.’1′     Not rounded Not rounded
/449 – Education cess Rounded to INR.’1′ Rounded to INR.’1′     Not rounded Not rounded
/450 – Tax payable and surcharge Rounded to INR.’1′ Rounded to INR.’10’ Upper rounded to INR.’1′ Not rounded
/460 – Income tax Rounded to INR.’1′ Rounded to INR.’1′ Rounded to INR.’1′

  Rounded to INR.’1′.

Not rounded in last period (projection factor – 0)

  1. SAP advises customers to maintain the value of the constant TAXRO as ‘2’. Under this option the Monthly tax wage type /460 will be always rounded.This will also avoid any short deduction.

Please note that you need to consult with your legal and can accordingly set the value of the constant.

Note: In case if the value of the constant ‘TAXRO’ is set to value ‘2’, the following rounding behavior applies for the wage type /434 (Taxable Income).

  1. E.g: a. If the value of /434 = 456344.9, then the amount will be upper rounded to INR.’1′. Then the value of wage type /434 = 456345.00.

b. If the value of /434 = 456345.10, then the amount will be rounded to nearest INR.’10’. Then the value of wage type /434 = 456350.00.

  1. The value of the constant cannot be changed retrospectively across Financial years. In case of cross financial year retro payroll run, because of which the system will bring forward     inconsistent tax differences.
  2. You can not have multiple values for a Financial year . Following entry is not correct for TAXRO

        01.04.2014 – 31.12.2014 –> TAXRO = ‘2’

        01.01.2015 – 31.12.9999 –> TAXRO = ‘3’

This entry is not supported. For the year 01.04.2014 – 31.03.2015 the value of TAXRO should be either ‘2’ or ‘3’ .

  1. It is advisable not to alter the value of constant once you have set it and ran a payroll.
