The processing month will be displayed

Enter the Employee Name/Code

Select Action- ‘Stop Payment’ or ‘Stop Payment Until Release’

Stop Payment- The salary will be processed but will not be displayed in the Salary Payment Bank Reports for pay-out.

Stop Payment Until Release- Salary will be held for that month and will continue to be held till the salary is released. Since salary is not processed, the employee details will not be displayed in the Salary Payments Bank Reports for payout.

 

Mention the reason for the release

 

Check the box- ‘Stop Income Tax Projection for TDS Calculation’.

This will not allow the earnings to be projected during the stop-payment period. Once the salary is released, the earnings will be projected. Thus, it helps in reducing the TDS for the month as there will be no projected salary for the remaining months of the year.

 

 

If you select ‘Stop payment until Release’ post payroll process, you will get the message that since payroll is already processed, the payslip will be deleted.
