Half-yearly declaration (zero declaration)

If you process the wages per half year but have to submit a declaration every month, an unbalanced situation arises. You have to submit a declaration in the first five months, but Profit only performs a calculation in period 6. Because you are obliged to submit a declaration you must submit a Zero declaration for period 1 through 5. This declaration does have the employee and employer fields that do not get calculated, but not the calculated fields. Zero declarations are not generated automatically. If you generate the zero declarations together with the period 6 declaration, the period 1 declaration would be submitted too late. If you generate the zero declarations for period 1 through 5 together with the period 6 declaration, problems will arise if the employer would terminate his activities.


Although you can immediately create zero declaration lines for multiple periods, we recommend you only prepare them at the end of the wage time frame. Otherwise data for employees entering employment during the course of the month would not be sent along to the tax authority.

You can also generate zero declarations in the case of quarterly and yearly wage processing and a monthly declaration time frame. For a manager/large shareholder that does not receive an actual wage this could mean that for him a zero declaration is submitted eleven times without paying ‘Loonheffingen’, while one declaration with payment of ‘Loonheffingen’ on his fictitious wage is submitted in December.

You can now also generate zero declarations if no employees appear in the declaration.

To generate a zero declaration:

  1. Go to: HR / Payroll / Salary processing cockpit.
  2. Click on the action: Declaration.
  3. Click on: New.
  4. Select the Zero declaration check box.
  5. Click on: Next.
  6. Select the period line.
  7. Click on: Finish.

    You can now check the declaration and prepare it for sending if the check is successful.
