Sometimes, salary revisions are done retrospectively from many months before. Hence, arrears (difference in salary) for all those months must be paid. The arrears calculator determines the difference between the revised pay and actual pay for the arrears period, and then updates the arrears components. Various concerns, such as taxation and statutory deductions, are automatically handled.

To view the existing record of arrears processed, navigate to Payroll > Payroll Inputs > Arrears. You can also navigate to Actions > Payroll > Pay Arrears or Actions > Arrears to go to this page.
