Yearly declaration (zero declaration)
In case of a yearly wage processing, you prepare monthly declarations, because Profit does not support yearly declarations. This creates an unbalanced situation. For the first eleven months you must submit a declaration, even though Profit only performs a calculation in period 12. As you are obliged to submit a declaration, you must submit a Zero declaration for periods 1 to 11. This declaration does include the employee and employer fields that have not been calculated, but does not include any calculated fields. Zero declarations are not generated automatically. If the zero declarations would be generated together with period 12, you would be submitting the period 1 data too late. If the zero declarations for periods 1 to 11 are generated together with period 12, problems would occur if the employer were to terminate employment.
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, employees that have entered employment in the course of the month would not be included in the submission to the tax authority.
You can also generate zero declarations in case of quarterly or half-yearly wage processing and a monthly declaration time frame.
You can also generate zero declarations if no employees appear in the declaration.
To generate a zero declaration:
- Go to: HR / Payroll / Salary processing cockpit.
- Click on the action: Declaration.
- Click on: New.
- Select the Zero declaration check box.
- Click on: Next.
- Select the period line.
- Click on: Finish.
