Calculate Prorata in payrun

This article is for owners and admins who use Humanised

There are several instances when you must prorate the monthly salary to the number of days an employee has worked.

Here’s how to prorate salaries in these scenarios

Employee joins or leaves in the middle of the salary cycle

If you update them as early as possible, there is little chance for you to forget when the relevant pay cycle rolls around.

Humanised keeps track of joined dates and resigned dates of all employees for a number of different reasons including pro rata calculations. When you create a payrun for a certain pay cycle (month) Humanised will look for any employees who have joined or left in the middle of the pay cycle.

Depending on whether you consider the number of days in the calendar month, a fixed number of days or variable number of days, it will calculate the number of days the employee has worked and prorate the salary accordingly.

However, we realize that prorated salaries are not that straightforward. For this reason, you can further adjust your no.of days worked for the month. This will recalculate the pay categories you have selected in company settings in real time.

Employee was absent for a large portion of the pay cycle

When you switch on pro rata for an organization, you will get the option of editing the no.of days worked on each employee. Update the no.of days worked for relevant employees to pro rate their salaries
