This article describes various salary types for an employee.
You can enter the salary type (gross, net, employer's expenses) and the "amount" using the Salary dashlet at employee level:
The output of this dashlet is always shown on the payslip with wage code 1000 | Salary shown.
When using a schedule, the calculation is based on average hours (so the salary is the same every month).
If you're working with hour codes rather than a schedule, Visma Nmbrs makes the calculation according to the actual hours worked during a period.
Various salary types are explained below.
This is the salary before deducting tax and social insurance.
Gross fulltime salary
This is where you enter the full-time gross salary. If an employee works less than full-time, a certain amount of the full-time salary will be paid based on the employee's part-time percentage.
Gross parttime salary
This is where you enter the part-time gross salary. Irrespective of the employee's part-time percentage, this amount will be paid in gross.
Gross hourly wage
Payment is made on the basis of this hourly wage. The "full-time salary" (stated on the payslip as "full-time equivalent gross salary") will change every month if no schedule is used.
This is the salary remaining after taxes and premiums have been deducted from the gross salary.
Net parttime salary incl. wage components
This amount is paid net, regardless of the hours worked and includes all wage components (payment of leave allowances, premiums, deductions).
Net parttime salary excl. wage components.
Net salary irrespective of part-time percentage. This amount is paid net, independently of the hours worked and excludes all wage components (payment of leave allowances, premiums, deductions).
Net hourly wage excl. wage components.
Amount is calculated on the basis of this net hourly wage. This excludes all wage components (payment of leave allowances, premiums, deductions).
Net hourly wage incl. wage components.
Net hourly wage including all wage components (payment of leave allowances, premiums, deductions).
For employees with a net salary who receive automatic payment of leave allowances, the net amounts of the output wage codes will not be correctly calculated in the net hourly wage or the error message 'process settings' will appear. The workaround for this is to enter the leave allowances manually rather than having them paid automatically.
Payment based on employer's costs
You can enter employer's total expenses in the Salary dashlet. In that case, the gross salary is calculated on the basis of total employer's expenses. Leave allowances, deductions and premiums are all included here.
Note: There will be an incorrect payslip, if an employee starts working during the month and is paid on the basis of employer's expenses. In the first month, a different kind of payment will have to be chosen.
Note: If employer's expenses are used in combination with branch deductions for the employee, this can result in an incorrect payslip. A different salary type will have to be used in this case.
Payment based on a salary table
A salary table can be added at the employee level. The employee is then linked to a particular grade and step in the salary table. When the values in the salary table are adjusted, the salary of the employee will also be adjusted.
You can also create and update salary tables yourself.
