Hello! Hr.My looks incredible and I would be happy to use this platform for my needs and contribute as well. Just a quick question on the payroll side of things. Can hr.my handle a tiered payroll system depending on estimated annual salary like the United States has, or would we need to calculate this off site and enter these in manually for each payroll?

I really think hr.my is a gem, and really want to use this. Hopefully we can make something work!

Hi Mike, for now you will have to do it manually. Later when I have more free time, I can start to work on the payroll engine that is specific for the US, if it's not too complicated.

Hey Kap! There are federal and state states--(sometimes).

I think just having a tier or progressive tax schedule function would work fine. The HR person in the US can put in the tiers the apply.

I can maybe give you a basic code structure for it in python -- that is the only language I know. :-)

I also have a spread sheet that details the entire tax structure too. I would be happy to send that though it is a bit complex beyond just entering in tax bracket; elections for withholding, filing status etc. Those bit can be determined by the HR person I believe because keeping up with the tax codes here can result in a lot of maintenance in hr.my.

I do think your product is fantastic I am 100% want to use it. People pay a lot of money here for payroll processing, and if there were a tier system option in Statutory Contributions people in the US would use this. You should charge for it here just so you don't run into a bigger donation gap though.

Let me know if you want to see the sheet or a code snippet on what it might look like. I am happy to help you how I can.

Hey Kap, first off thank you again for providing this tool!

The US uses a progressive tax system for Federal and State taxes so on a annualized basis it looks like this:

AAA-->BBB = some%
BBB+1-->CCC = another%

I can show you a spread sheet the shows the logic if you wish. I can even sketch out a little python snippet if you think it would help.

Also do you have a way of getting in touch directly? I would like to ask more about using hr.my on a commercial basis. Let me know if you would like to discuss more. :-)

Hi Mike, this forum will require new user posts to be moderated as there are many spams from automated bots, that's why you message did not come up after posting.

Anyway, I will reply your email later.
