Advantage payroll question

Postby Karen Sigel » Mon Feb 28, 2011 1:31 pm

I don't know if anyone in this group is a current or former Advantage user, but an Advantage user from the Philadelphia area is having trouble getting support from Deltek on the following question and contacted me to ask me to post it for him. If anyone can give him an answer, please let me know and I'll pass it on and/or put you in touch.

Ms. Sigel: my thanks for your help. This is my question:

In payroll, the system is not deducting an individual's 125 plan health insurance deduction from gross and is consequently calculating FICA and Medicare on the wrong base. Can anyone tell me what to do to get the system to compute correctly?

If anyone can help, please let me know. Thanks-

Karen

Did this just start happening suddenly? Have they verified that the withholding codes are setup properly as cafeteria type codes under payroll?

Here, finally is a response:

Hello Karen. I am at wit's end. My system might be faulty. I have the 125 deductions set up in payroll withholding maintenance as "cafeteria" but the system is still calculating on the wrong base.

I'm not sure what people mean by sequence number. The number that the deduction is? That is, fifth out of ten? I don't think I can change the sequence once there is data in the withholding.

Oh well, there is always manual calculation!

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I realize that we're talking about Advantage but the Vision Help file says this: "The sequence number (The value in the Seq field on the Payroll Withholding Setup form or dialog) determines the order Vision uses to calculate taxes when the withholding is added to the Additional Deductions from Wages grid of another withholding. If the calculation of one withholding is dependant on another, it is important that the withholding to be calculated first have a lower sequence number (for example, if 401k needs to be calculated before Federal, 401k should have a lower sequence number than Federal). For more information about defining how withholdings calculate, see Create User-Defined Rules for Calculating Wages by Withholding."
