In Procountor’s new salary section, you can simultaneously save the information of several tax deduction cards for an employee. A person can only have one valid tax deduction card at a time, so the entry into force time is specified using the tax card date.
You can already use the direct transfer of tax cards before the January salary calculation, from November onward.
For tax cards fetched with the Direct transfer of tax cards functionality the Limit used field value is automatically 0,00. Another figure can be added if needed. A figure is needed for the Income limit remaining row on salary slips to work correctly.
Deleting direct transfer requests
In situations when the direct transfer requester cannot complete the direct transfer by him/herself the transfer can be deleted and an other requester can make the transfer. Only Not sent and Sent requests can be deleted.
