Setup Claim Variables

Empxtrack provides a functionality to setup claim variables. This functionality allows employees to claim for their allowances that they receive as a part of their CTC.

To setup claim variables, you need to:

1.  Log in as an HR Admin/HR Manager.

2.  On the Dashboards homepage, click on the Product configurations tab. Under Payroll Settings, click Configure Payroll. By default, global payroll settings page appears. Click on the Payroll Variables tab such that Variables type page appears.

3.  Select Salary/Earnings variables by clicking on the Salary/Earnings links under Variable type section.

4.  By default, the Salary/Earnings section displays the Active variables as shown in Figure 1.

a.  Non taxable accrual 1 (out_sal_non_taxable_accrual1) to Non taxable accrual 5 (out_sal_non_taxable_accrual5): For claims that get accrued over a period of time.
b. Non taxable allow 1 (out_sal_non_taxable_allow1)  to Non taxable allow 15 (out_sal_non_taxable_allow15): For claims that do not get accrued and need to be claimed immediately.

6.  Select Non Taxable Accrual 1 variable from the list. The edit section for the variable appears as shown in Figure 2.
