As we all may know that WT /402 (Projection Factor) are positioning a very critical in the SAP Indonesia Payroll processing. Especially in calculation of the Income tax (Article 21 – Income Tax). Incorrect understanding about the wage type will lead to the incorrect of overall Income Tax calculation

**Definitions**

This wage type is actually used for projecting/annualized the total income in yearly basis. The formulas could be found at PCR IDN3 (Setup Projection Factor for Tax Calculation) in sub Pay Schema IDN0. Generally, the PCR can be read as below:

Rate = NAMTY / NAMTD

Where:

*NAMTY = Normalized number of active month in current fiscal year*

*NAMTD = Normalize number of active month until specific date in the current fiscal year*

*Another definition to make it more simpler can be read as below:*

Projection Factor = Total Active Month Period in one Tax Year Calendar /

Period N in On-going Tax Year Calendar

**Usage**

In some of payroll formulas as to calculate Regular Net Income (/414) and to calculate Regular Tax (/422).

Pls find the formulas below :

** /414 = (/412 + prev /412 ytd) * /402**

Or

** Annual Regular Net = (Regular Net Income + Regular Net Income in CRT table from previous period) * Projection factor**

**Sample Projection Factor Definition**

**Foot Note**

Projection factor is commonly used in both of Regular Payroll Run and Off-Cycle Payroll Run. They’re using the same defintion as in practice.

Special note given for the termination/resignation action in the mid of the year, for the case, the projection factor will always be considered as 1 (one). SAP will calculate as it is falling at the end of tax year calendar, just the same as when we come to end of year, that is December period in normal cases. So at the month of termination/resignation, there’ll be Tax Overpaid and therefore a Tax refund must be delivering for the employee.

Hi Pak Harry,

Artikel yang bagus. Tapi apa boleh tahu juga bagaimana system menentukan NAMTY dan NAMTD? Atau input / parameter apa yang menentukan NAMTY dan NAMTD?

Terima kasih.

Dear

There is std solution to this, for the cases were termination / resignation are going to be the case. Please maintain N0 in IT0041, system will project the tax for the date which is being maintained under N0 reason.

Hello Mas Harry;

Please correct me if I’m wrong. If we see under FUIDTAX, during the calculation of annual regular net (/414), the system will calculate the amount using the formula below:

annual regular net = annualizing factor * projection factor * (current regular + regular ytd) + previous regular

or if we are to use the wage type symbolization, then the formula will look something like this:

/414 = /401 * /402 * (/412 + /412 ytd) + /4P1

where /401 is annualizing factor

/402 projection factor, the formulation is as stated above. It will reset its number of month and current period when the employee is transferred to a different tax office grouping, or turned into 1 if the employee is terminated (but not deceased or left the country).

/412 current regular income where it gathered all regular incomes as defined so

/412 ytd (year to date) is the accumulated regular income from the previous periods within the same tax year or tax office grouping period taken from CRT

/4P1 is the amount of cumulated regular incomes from the previous company or previous tax office grouping period

What I wanted to ask is, what is the “most correct” projection factor number at the end of period?

Here’s an example according to my understanding:

Tugiyel Minal Minul is an employee who worked in Company PT Beleketewek Gunjreng , Tbk. started working in branch A, transferred in May to another branch (B) with different tax office grouping, and transferred again to branch C in July. She is paid 20 Million Rupiahs a month and no changes in remuneration during the transfer

The calculation will be performed as below:

Jan 1 * 12/1 * (20 + 0) + 0 = 240

Feb 1 * 12/2 * (20 + 20) + 0 = 240

Mar 1 * 12/3 * (20 + 40) + 0 = 240

Apr 1 * 12/4 * (20 + 60) + 0 = 240

May transferred to another branch, number of total period would be 8 and previous regular income is 80

May 1 * 8/1 * (20 + 0) + 80 = 240

Jun 1 * 8/2 * (20 + 20) + 80 = 240

July transferred to yet another branch, number of total period would be 6 and previous regular income is 100

Jul 1 * 6/1 * (20 + 0) + 120 = 240

Aug 1 * 6/2 * (20 + 20) + 120 = 240

Sep 1 * 6/3 * (20 + 40) + 120 = 240

Oct 1 * 6/4 * (20 + 60) + 120 = 240

Nov 1 * 6/5 * (20 + 80) + 120 = 240

Dec 1 * 6/6 * (20 + 120) + 120 = 240

With this rule, the annual regular is stable through the whole year.

Your advice is highly appreciated 🙂

Regards,

Ari
