Taxation Module Setup
When Enable Taxation Module is turned off, Taxation Processing on the menu is not available.
When the Accumulate Forms by HKID is turned on, IR56B, IR56F, IR56G, and IR56M will accumulate the payrolls of the same HKID to the same sheet regardless of the employee number. Which is applied for one employee with multiple employee numbers because of multiple employment contracts.
When the Accumulate Forms by HKID is turned on, IR56B also included those terminated contracts unless IR56F/G is already printed for those HKID numbers or the termination date is sooner than the taxation year start date.
When Include Area to Address is turned on, the address line of all IR documents will append the Area (in Employee Master, Personal Info Tab) to the Address, e.g. If the Area is Kowloon. KOWLOON will be added at the end of the address line of all IR documents. This option is good to turn off if your employee address already contains the area or the address is in Chinese.
If the Allow create zero amount IR form even if payroll amount is zero is turned on, HRPro will create zero amount IR Form (IR56B, IR56F, IR56M) for all eligible employees no matter whether the employee has payroll amount or not. It is good for a company wish to manually create IR Forms without depending on the payroll records.
