Name

Type and Description

1.  Calculation Method

1 alphabetic character.

 

Valid values are:

 

H   =  Hourly Rates

P   =  Percent of Wages

 

This is the method by which the worker's compensation premium is calculated on an employee‑by‑employee basis.  Each employee record contains a rate field for worker's compensation.  If the current field is H, this rate represents a certain number of dollars per hour (or part) worked.  If the current field is P, this rate represents a percentage of the employee's taxable earnings.

2.  Anniversary Date

A date in the standard date format.

 

This is the anniversary, or start date, of the Worker's Compensation Insurance policy for this state.

3.  Maximum Amount

8 numeric digits with 2 decimal places (999,999.99).

 

Some states only require that the worker's compensation premium be paid on an individual employee's wages or hours up to a maximum.  If this is the case, enter the maximum wages or hours here.

 

NOTE:  Each employee must be specified individually as being eligible or subject to this amount cut‑off.  If an employee is not so specified, then the premium will be calculated on all wages or hours anyway.

 

You specify whether or not an employee is eligible for this maximum cut‑off in field 43 on screen 1 of the Employee File application.

 

NOTE:  The period covered by this maximum amount is the same as the accumulation period defined in the next field. 

4.  Accumulation Period

1 alphabetic character.

 

Valid values are:

 

P   =  Period (as defined in this package‑usually a month)

Q   =  Quarter

Y   =  Calendar Year

A   =  Anniversary Year

 

The wages or hours subject to worker's compensation will be accumulated for each employee in an accumulator in the Employee File. The current field specifies when and how this accumulator is to be cleared.  If this field is P, Q or Y, then the accumulator will be cleared whenever the Clear PTD Totals, Clear QTD Totals, or Clear YTD Totalsapplications (respectively) are run.  If this field is A, then the user will be allowed to clear the accumulator when the Worker's Compensation Report is printed, but only if the current date is on or after the anniversary date, (which is defined in field 2) and only if the date the accumulators were last cleared was before the anniversary date in the current year.

4.  Accumulation Period (continued)

The Worker's Compensation Report calculates the premium based on the accumulated wages or hours in the Employee File application.

5.  Experience Modifier

5 numeric digits with 2 decimal places (999.99).

 

This is a state‑assigned number and represents a percentage to multiply the calculated worker compensation premium by, based on past experience of claims by employees, in order to get the final value of the premium due.  This defaults to 100% on initial entry. 

6.  Expense Account

Up to 5 alphanumeric characters.

 

This field has the same significance as the SUI Expense Account.  This should be the main account number for the Worker's Compensation expense account.

 

If it is blank, no automatic posting of the worker's compensation premium will be done during payroll check posting.  Otherwise, the calculated premium amounts will automatically be posted to the G/L Distribution file.

 

Pressing the F7 key will allow you to search for an account by number or pressing the F8 key will allow you to search for an account by description.

7.  Liability Account

An account number in the standard account number format.

 

This is the credit (liability) account corresponding to the debit (expense) account in the previous field.

 

Pressing the F7 key will allow you to search for an account by number or pressing the F8 key will allow you to search for an account by description.

8.  Calculate On

    Reg/Base/All Pay

1 alphabetic character.

 

This field determines if the tax code calculation will be based on regular pay, all pay at the base rate, or all pay.

R   =  Regular Pay Only

A   =  All Pay(Default)
