Types of Rate Calcultions

There are 4 types of Rate Calculations available in Runtime Payroll:

  1. Fixed
  2. Divide by Fixed Days
  3. Divide by Month Days
Fixed

Under ‘Fixed’ type, whatever you enter as employee’s salary is directly considered for calculation. No further adjustment or division is done.

Divide by Fixed Days

Under this type, the amount entered as employee salary is divided by a fixed number of days specified in the configuration. For e.g., if the salary entered is INR 15,000 and fixed days specified are 30, the salary calculation will be based on INR 15,000 / 30 = INR 500.

Additional Options: Check ‘Exclude Holidays’ and/or ‘Exclude Weekoffs’ to exclude them from total number of days count in a month/period.

Divide by Month Days

This is the most commonly used type of calculation. Under this method, the amount entered as employee salary is divided by number of days in the month. This number automatically changes month by month. For e.g. in the month of June, 30 days and in the month of July, 31 days will be used.
