Case No: L12094. Project: 12.40: LinkSOFT Version 12.40 - 12.41
Logged By: Sanjay (Link Technologies) on behalf of Alvis (Link Technologies) on 10 Nov 2020 03:58PM
Priority: Low
Product: Payroll & HR
Group: Software Defect
Time Taken: 6.00 (Weight: 16.00)
Version: 12.40
Assigned To: Sanjay (Link Technologies)

Status: Closed
Subject: PNG dependant rebate rules to be made configurable
Summary:    

Issue: 

PNG Tax rules are hardcoded in function: LT_PAY_CalculateDependantRebate_fx. 

If the PNG rates changes, the calculations will need to be amended.

Solution:

  1. The dependant rebate rates need to be added as rules in the tax scale setup.
  2. Add the rebate amount to the payroll processing screen as a non-pay item. This is required by the client (ANGSL) to show the rebate amount in the employee's payslip so they can verify the PAYE amount calculated is correct.
