User Manual Payroll Ver.5.2.1/5.3.1 STJ Electronics Pvt. LTD

1. INTRODUCTION :
Payroll (Oracle/SQL)
The purpose of this PAYROLL software is to provide proper computerized maintenance of salary. It can easily
capture the employee’s attendance data from the SAVIOR TIME OFFICE software and generate all the
payroll-related reports like Pay slip, PF, FPF, ESI, Bonus, Advance Statement, Loan Statement etc.

On loading the PAYROLL software the screen looks as shown in Fig.1:

Fig. 1

Here you enter your valid Username and Password then click Ok button. You should also select the Data
Server (either Oracle 7.x,8.x or Microsoft SQL Server).

If the Username, Password and the Data Server are all valid, then you will get the operating screen of Payroll
otherwise you will get the message accordingly that will indicate the login failed.

Once you get the Payroll operation screen you will find a screen as shown in Fig. 2. The commonly used
options are available as large icons, arranged vertically on the left hand side of the screen.

page no 1 to 22
User Manual Payroll Ver.5.2.1/5.3.1 STJ Electronics Pvt. LTD
PF No. : If the employee is covered under the PF scheme, his/her PF number (as provided by the Govt.
authority) should be entered here.

ESI No. : If the employee is covered under the ESI scheme, his/her ESI number (as provided by the Govt.
authority) should be entered here.

HRA : This is the House Rent Allowance. The software facilitates two types of entries:

a. Fixed Amount

b. Calculated according to the formula as defined by you in the payroll setup under utilities (more about
Formula under the section Formula Entry).

If you specify the amount in the HRA field and leave the formula field in front of it empty, the software will
calculate the HRA as a fixed amount. But if any formula is specified in the formula field, then the calculation will
be in accordance with the formula.

E.g. If you want to calculate the HRA as 30% of the BASIC, you can define the code of that formula through
payroll formula setting option. The code and formula is A = (BASIC * HRA) / 100. Then input the HRA value
30 and the formula as A an the software will calculate the amount automatically at the time of processing.

PF : This is the amount of the Provident Fund and the entry is same as the HRA.

FPF : This is the amount of the Family Pension Fund and the entry is same as the HRA.

ESI : This is the amount of the Employees State Insurance and the entry is same as the HRA.
OT RATE Per Hour : This is required for the calculation of the overtime.

FORMULAS : Here you choose formula for HRA, PF, FPF, ESI, OT Rate / Hours and all Deduction &
Earning which should be previously declared through Formula setting option (more on formulas under the
section Formula Setting).

DEDUCTIONS: The software asks for ten possible types (can be defined by the user) of DEDUCTIONS.
You can describe the Name/Reason of the deduction, the fixed amount or the formula for the calculation of the
deduction. The concept of calculation using the formula is same as that of HRA.

EARNINGS : The software asks for ten possible types ( can be defined by the user ) of EARNINGS. You
can describe the name of the earnings, the fixed amount or the formula for the calculation of the said earning.
The concept of calculation using the formula is same as that of the HRA.
MODIFY

This option facilitates for modification of informations of the existing employee’s record. Selecting the Modify
button the details of the selected row is displayed. So before you click the Modify button first you should click
on the desired row in the displayed table. You can also make use of the Find Paycode No. button to quickly
jump to the desired record.
DELETE

This option facilitates for deletion of selected employee record. Similar to the Modify option, first you should
click on the desired record in the table. For quick searching you can use the Find Paycode No button.

User Manual Payroll Ver.5.2.1/5.3.1 STJ Electronics Pvt. LTD

When you click Delete button then the above screen appears.If you click Yes button then selected employee
record will be deleted.

3. LOAN/ADVANCE ENTRY

You should specify the Paycode for which you want to make an entry. On specifying the valid paycode, the
Card No., Name and the Department appears automatically. The details of the Advance/Loan already taken
by the employee also appears on the appropriate side (you can select the Loan ID./Advance ID. if more than
Advance/Loan are taken). If you want to delete any Advance/Loan already given then you can select the
appropriate Advance/Loan ID from the drop down list and then click the Delete button. Please note that if you
delete the Advance/Loan entry for a month for which you have captured and processed data in Payroll then
after deleting the entry you should Capture and Process the data once again for that employee for that month
onwards.

For both, Advance and Loan, the number of installments will be calculated by the system itself.

While making entry for Advance/Loan, whatever date you specify as the Installment Date, the deduction will
start from that month only and will continue till the balance amount becomes zero.

In case you make more than one Advance entry for an employee in the same month, then the total Advance
deduction amount will be the sum of the individual installments for the month.

In case of Loan, suppose you have made an entry for which the deductions will be done for ten months. Now
before this Loan is recovered in full, you make another Loan entry, then in that case the previous balance Loan
amount will be merged with this new Loan amount and the instalment of deduction will be the new instalment
amount only.

page no 9 to 22
User Manual Payroll Ver.5.2.1/5.3.1 STJ Electronics Pvt. LTD
1. All formulas must be included within the parenthesis i.e. ( )
2. There should be at least one blank space before and after any field name or operator sign.
3. You can make conditions in the Formula by using the standard IF-THEN-ELSE structure as shown in the

IF ( ( BASIC / MON_DAY ) * TDAYS ) >> 6500 THEN ( 6500 * PF ) / 100 ELSE ( ( ( BASIC /
MON_DAY ) * TDAYS ) * PF ) / 100
Please note that for Greater Than symbol “>” use “>>” , for Less Than symbol “<” use “<<”, for Gerater
Than Equal To symbol “>=” use “>=” and for Less Than Equal To symbol “<=” use “<=” signs.
4. If you want to include an already defined formula in some other formula then you should write the formula
code within <>. For example suppose you have defined a formula A=(((BASIC/
MON_DAY)*TDAYS)*HRA)/100. Now you want to use this formula, defined as A, in another
formula J, then you should define the formula as

J=IF ( ( ( BASIC / MON_DAY ) * TDAYS ) + <A> ) < 6500 THEN ( ( ( ( ( BASIC / MON_DAY ) *
TDAYS ) + <A> ) * ESI ) / 100 ) ELSE 0
5. For writing formula for OT, kindly note that OT Rate has to be converted to rate per minute. So proper
