[Malaysian Payroll ONLY] Why is HR.my's salary calculation different from mine?

** For Malaysian Payroll ONLY **

Over the years, there had been many (YES, many many many) users who came to me and raised the issue of salary calculation difference between HR.my and theirs. It might be due to difference in PCB, EPF, SOCSO or whatever.

I used to spend quite some time going through their calculation details (sometimes even hours), only to find out that among all such cases, 99.99% of them were due to user mistakes. Among those mistakes that I could still recall include:

  • Calculating PCB without considering EPF relief, or by using wrong amount for EPF relief
  • Using wrong EPF rates
  • Mistakes in calculation formula
  • Neglecting the rounding off requirements by relevant authorities
  • Treating yearly tax result as monthly PCB result
  • Elementary arithmetic errors
  • etc.

As such, starting from year 2019, I will no longer be able to offer such time-consuming assistance to vet through your salary calculations. If you have doubt with HR.my's calculation, you may easily turn off the automatic tax calculation through Employee->Management->Edit->Salary->Statutory Details->Tax Status, and set it to "No Tax Contribution". After that, use Statutory Contribution "Tax" to enter your own calculated tax amount. Likewise, if you need to use your own EPF amount (or others) instead of the system calculated ones, you may make use of the same Statutory Contribution module as well.

You may also run a quick check using this PCB Calculator .

If you are very sure that your calculation is correct, then you may show me your calculation and point out how HR.my has been wrong in the calculation with supporting proof. Please note that this is different from asking me to confirm why your calculation is different.
