We are Frappe are looking forward to add features specifically required for Middle East HR and payroll. Hence, inviting community members working in this space to help us identify the specific gaps. Once there is a proposal, we can further discuss it to validate it’s generic nature.
Will request community members to brief a feature with the use-case example, so that other members can understand it easily and further comment. Let’s try and follow this format.
Required in regions
To set the momentum, listing some of feature request as heard from other community members. Please validate if these are generic or specific process followed in certain companies only.
Days in Payroll Month
30 days in payroll month, irrespective of actual no. of days as per gregorian calendar.
Though the base amount of Employee Salary will remain same, this will have impact on the Leave Without Pay calculation of an Employee. It will not be prorated based on actual months, but always consider 30 days in a month.
Heard in Qatar region. Does other region have same feature?
Yearly Leave Management
In ME, each migrant Employee is entitled for 30 days / 45 days (based on grade) of leaves in a year. Is it manageable using the current Leaving Type and Leave Allocation features in ERPNext? If not, what are the additional enhancements needed in the Leave and Payroll cycle?
Some examples on Payroll Calculation
If Employees takes HRA and transportation allowance (tracked in Employee master)
Then, final salary = 75% of Basic + Work Allowance
i.e HRA and Transportation should not be included for calculating final salary / Gross salary.
If Employee doesn’t take HRA and Transportation allowance
Then, final salary = 75% of Basic + HRA + Transportation + Work Allowance
i.e HRA and Transportation should be included for calculating final salary / Gross Salary.
Note: Please validate if these use-cases are generic or specific to some companies processes.
Additional fields in Employee master
What are the additional custom fields to be added to capture about Employee? Like some countries give IQAMA etc. What is general term for it? Please propose other such “generic only” fields.
What is standard process for Gratuity? We have introduced Gratuity for Indian customers though.
Please share your comments on the above and share new request. Later on, we can amend this post to update which requirements are validated and can be considered in the roadmap.
