“The Bank I want to use in a bank enrollment is not showing up in the list of banks. What am I doing wrong?”
Don’t fret! You need to add your bank first. Here are more details about Banks:
Banks are an internal system of tracking Credits and Debits for a Banked items.
Example: Income taxes can be a great example here. you can add a bank enrollment based on your country’s tax rule where the employee should be credited each month.
Things you need decide before creating your bank.
- Name – The name of the bank.
- Classification – If you need to add the amounts that a specific bank will accumulate for the Alphalist, you would need to categorize the banks. You can learn more about this on this article – How to Generate the BIR Alphalist?
- Redeemable – You can make a bank redeemable so that it will show on the employees paystub. This is useful for showing how much they have earned in the 13th month bank so far this year. If make the bank redeemable then you need to decide the following:
- Redeemable unit – If you would like to show on the payslip as ‘money’ or ‘day’.
- Redeemable date – It will show a specific day to when is it available to the employee.
- Here are examples to what will show on the payslips if the redeemable date is on December 15, 2015:
- Frequency: Once
It will show as 13th Month: payable: December 15, 2015Frequency: Each Month
It will show as 13th Month: payable: 15th of the monthFrequency: Each Quarter
It will show as 13th Month: payable: 3rd month of the quarter
Frequency: Each Year
It will show as 13th Month: payable: Dec 15
If there is no specific redeemable date on the bank, then it’ll show as:Frequency: Once
13th Month: payable: once
Frequency: Each Month
13th Month: payable: once every monthFrequency: Each Quarter
13th Month: payable: once every quarter
- One thing to note is even if there is a redeemable date, the bank will still continue to banked amounts as long as you don’t pay it out.
