How to handle the staff who have No or Wrong MPF contribution?
1. The staff is below 18 or over 65
For staff who are below 18 or over 65, both ER and EE no need to make the contribution.
If staff reaches 18 in the mid-month, the EE and ER MPF contribution would be calculated from the staff Birthday to the last day of the month
If staff reaches 65 in the mid-month, the EE and ER MPF contribution would be calculated from the 1st day of the month to the day before the staff's birthday.
E.g staff reach 65 on 11 Apr 2021 with salary HKD15,000/monthly, then only 5% of the salary amount from 1 Jan to 10 Apr need to make the contribution, i.e 15000/30*10*5%=HKD250. After 12 Apr 2021, both ER and EE no need to make MPF contributions anymore.
System would have a reminder, 18 and 65 beside the name of the staff when you generate their payroll
2. The Total Payroll Amount is less than HKD 7,100
For staff Monthly Salary less than HKD 7,100, EE no need to make MPF contribution.
3. The staff Employment Period is within the MPF Contribution Holiday
Staff have 30 days Contribution Holiday. Backstage would calculate the staff 1st ER and EE Contribution Commencement Date automatically according to the staff Join Date.
If you update the join date after the Placement is created, please "Update" the ER and EE Commencement Date also
Please go to the staff Applicant profile to update the Birth Date and then update the ER and EE Contribution Commencement Date if you see the ER and EE Contribution Commencement Date is in year 203X as you may wrongly input the birth year.
4. The Pay Type Amount should be / should not be included in the Relavant Income
Some of the pay amounts is excluded from the Relevant Income, e.g Severance Payments or Long Service Payments
Go to Payroll -> Job order Template -> Choose the template -> Find the pay type
