Note that the new costing engine is included in Openbravo 3 starting from MP13.
New Openbravo instances or instances which did not calculate cost do not need to migrate to the new "costing" engine but just to create and validate a "Costing Rule" by having into account that: The costing rule window allows to define and validate costing rules.
It is important to remark that a costing rule can be validated if a "Currency" is configured for the legal entity in the organization window, therefore costs are calculated in that given currency.
A valid costing rule once created and validated for a legal entity organization will automatically be assigned to the products of that organization, therefore it can be reviewed in the Costing Rule tab of "Product" window.
Notice that "Costing Rules" is a feature implemented by the new Costing Engine, therefore a costing rule can be created and validated within an Openbravo instance managing costs only if it has been migrated to the new "Costing Engine".
This solution doesn’t support the SOCSO deferrable earnings which are backdated more than one month.
For example, One employee is maintained with such amounts in IT0015 in period 08.2016.
Wage Type Start Date Amount(RM) B011 300,00 B010 250,00 B010 100,00In this case, B011 is used for the SOCSO deferrable earnings which are backdated not more than one month, B010 is used for the SOCSO deferrable earnings which are backdated more than one month.****************Kindly be informed that this legally compliance grace period is only valid to 1 month backdated payment.
2 or more months will get penalty by reporting in Socso 8B form. Then in Period 04 in 04 2015, you should be able to see /122 and /620 which carry over the backdated amount into current period.
