The correct practice is to prorate CPF during the month when employee just received PR status and it is based on the CPF rate for PR year 1 (PR1).
You find out more details under How do I determine the year of SPR status for my SPR employees?
In Talenox, since this proration doesn't kick in automatically, here's how you can make it work:
- In "View all jobs" under Current Job Details section in the specific employee profile, create a new job card starting from the issue date of Permanent Resident.
- As you process payroll, there'll be 2 rows of Basic Salary due the salary proration.
- Uncheck CPF box for the Basic Salary before issue date of Permanent Resident.
- Then process payroll accordingly.
We will keep this article for reference before the proration of CPF is automated for such a case. :)
