Allocation Rules

Scroll below to see Allocation Rules for currently selected salary structure.
Allocation Rules of Salary Structure
Begin by adding a rule from the box at right. To understand this feature, let's take an example.
Here's a salary structure we want to define using the allocation rules:
Basic Salary
HRA
Bonus
Other Allowance
50% of Gross Salary
50% of Basic Salary
If Basic is less than 15,000 no bonus
Remaining Gross Salary
Minimum 15,000
Min. 50% of Basic Salary
If Basic is 15,000 or more, then 8.33% of Basic Salary
Maximum 22,000
Maximum 11,000
Here is how we would define the rules for various components

Basic Salary

  1. 1.
    Salary Component: Select Basic Salary
  2. 2.
    Order No: Enter 1
  3. 3.
    Conditional Definitions:
    • If Gross Salary is more than 0, then calculate 50% of Gross Salary, keep between 15000 to 22000
Basic Salary Allocation Example

HRA

  1. 1.
    Salary Component: Select House Rent Allowance
  2. 2.
    Order No: Enter 2
  3. 3.
    Conditional Definitions:
    • If Gross Salary is more than 0, then calculate 50% of Basic Salary, keep between 0 to 11000
HRA Allocation Example

Bonus

  1. 1.
    Salary Component: Select Bonus
  2. 2.
    Order No: Enter 3
  3. 3.
    Conditional Definitions:
    • If Basic Salary is more than 14999, then calculate 8.33% of Basic Salary, keep between 0 to 0
Bonus Allocation Example

Other Allowance

  1. 1.
    Salary Component: Select Other Allowance
  2. 2.
    Order No: Enter 4
  3. 3.
    Conditional Definitions:
    • If Gross Salary is more than 0, then calculate 100% of Gross Salary, keep between 0 to 0
    • Make sure to check Do not exceed Gross Salary
Do not exceed Gross Salary
Checking this option makes sure that the calculated value of the component, along-with values of earlier components (by order no), do not exceed the Gross Salary entered by you when applying the salary structure.
Other Allowance Allocation Example

Allocation Output

Following the example above, if we enter 50,000 as Gross Salary, the allocation shall be as follows:
  • Basic Salary: 22,000 (50% of Gross Salary)
  • HRA: 11,000 (50% of Basic Salary)
  • Bonus: 1,833 (8.33% of Basic Salary)
  • Other Allowance: 15,167 (Remaining from 50,000 after Basic, HRA and Bonus)

Conclusion

Salary Structure is a powerful feature of Runtime HRMS which can be used to define any type of salary structure that your organization follows. At the time of hiring and promotions, you simply need to provide the Gross Salary and select the Structure applicable to the candidate. The system will automatically allocate the amount to various components and save you a lot of time in processing salary revisions.
