Versions: 4.30
Release dates: March 7th, 2023.

This week we’re introducing a few feature improvements and bug fixes. Here are a few of them…

NIS Weekly Contributions Schedule Update

  1. Previously, our weekly contribution schedule simply treated a fortnight as a week. We’ve now adjusted this so that a fortnight is treated as 2 weeks. 
  2. As per NIS requirements, we’ve limited the number of weeks on the schedule to a maximum of 5 weeks. 

NIS TXT File for Weekly Contributions

This TXT file has also been updated with the changes above. 

Multi-Salary Payrolls

We’ve launched the first version of multi-salary payrolls allowing you to have multiple salaries for a single employee on the payroll. This caters to scenarios where an employee may have had a change of salary in the middle of the Payroll period. 

Financial Summary Updates

We’ve now added breakdowns for taxable and non-taxable allowances and deductions.

Form 2A update

We’ve updated the form to allow users to select whether they want to add non-taxable allowances or not.

Bank Account Form

We’ve added Primary/Secondary Account options to the bank account form.

Training Form

Added Months, Days, and Hours Duration

On the bank Accounts listing page, you’re now able to update multiple accounts at once, and also download bank account data.
