[MY] List of Benefits-In-Kind, Deductions and Perquisites pay items

Modified on Mon, 25 Sep, 2023 at 11:47 AM

By default, HReasily generates a full list of Benefits-In-Kind (BIK), Deductions and Perquisites (taxable and tax exempted) pay items. Users are not required to create their own custom pay items to account for these payments.

By using the default benefit-in-kind/perquisite/deductions pay item(s), HReasily will automatically capture these amounts and reflect them in the EA forms. 

For tax exempted amounts, once the cumulative amount has exceeded the cap, it'll automatically be assigned to gross salary accordingly. 



How to add benefit-in-kind/perquisite/deductions pay item(s)

To add a benefit-in-kind/perquisite/deductions pay item,

1. Go to the payroll table which is accessible by clicking on MANAGE payroll.

2. On the top left corner of the payroll table, click ADD PAY ITEM.
