Hi Alvis,

The following was done

  1. I created a new tax code for FJECAL with a rate as 5% effective from 01/08/2020.
  2. I created the 9th of the employee, but FJECAL was not calculated. There should have been a deduction of $31.25 as per the attached excel.
    1. Employee Code - E109
    2. Pay Rate - 300000
    3. Pay Team - Monthly
  3. The "Tax Reconciliation Report Fiji" report shows variances in the history pay after changes in 1 above.
