Hi Shanlin,

Have you set the ESCT Rate under the Employees Record?

Hi Neil,

I set the rate 30% for ESCT, please see the attached photo, the calculation didn't seem right. 30%x187.5 = $56.25, I don't know where is this $80.35 from?  Any helps for getting it correct are appreciated.  
Thanks Shanlin

Can the software automatically do the ESCT rate? as it should be the rate as PAYE, eg, with $6250 monthly payment, ESCT is $56.1 rate is 29.92%, which is not 30%

Hi Shanlin,

Go into Edit > Preferences > Payroll & Employees and untick the 'ESCT Paid By the Employer' option, it will then calculate the ESCT as $56.10. 

There are no plans at this stage to change the way ESCT is calculated.
