Up until now, KLARA has not had a specific function for calculating annual salaries. However, in order to be able to calculate annual salaries despite this, you have the following two options:
- As soon as the amount of the annual salary is known, you divide this into 12 equal parts and calculate the months January – December each with one twelfth. For example, you can do this this at the beginning of the next year for the year just passed.
- You calculate the months January – November with the monthly salary CHF 0.00. In December you then change the monthly salary to the full annual salary, and thus calculate the full annual salary in December. It is important that you create the pay slips in December and not in an earlier month, as this is the only way that you can be certain that any tax exemption limits and/or ceilings in the social insurances have been calculated correctly. Also remember that you must deduct the full employee contribution from the salary in December. You can also use this method retrospectively.
Also note that when you are entering the employees, that you set the “Start date in KLARA” correctly. This must be set to 1.1. of the year for which the annual salary is to be paid (for both methods). An incorrectly set start date cannot be changed retrospectively.
