Message during declaration check: The value of the field cannot be negative
The message appears because in a period, negative days or hours have been entered as wage entries for the employee. The tax authority does not accept negative days or hours in the wage declaration.
The hours processed in the wage declaration are the sum of the wage hours + paid leave hours + hours from the 'Salaris uit uren Verlof/Ziek' wage summary. If the result is negative, a message appears when you check the declaration.
Often this message appears because negative hours or days have been entered as wage entries on the wage component for ‘SV’ days, leave hours and parental leave.
You have entered a negative value as a wage entry on the 'Verlofuren uitbetalen' wage component. The negative value affects the processed hours, which can then be negative because of this.
You resolve this by deleting the wage entry and adding a wage entry to the 'Verlofuren kopen' wage component. This wage component does not affect the result of the processed hours.
You can in fact enter a negative amount on a wage component, but not on a wage component that is calculated based on days or hours.
You resolve the message by undoing the wage entry. Instead of entering negative hours and days, enter an amount as a deduction. You can add a wage component for this yourself, by copying a template wage component.
Next, you process and approve a correction period. After this, the message will no longer appear when checking the declaration.
