Right way of computing for backpay

Can anyone help me with this? Alam nyo po ba kung paano ang tamang pag compute sa last pay? Kelan po ba dapat i expect na may makukuha ka pang tax refund na kasama sa last pay mo? kse may mga company nag sasabi na na remit na nila sa BIR kaya di na kasama sa last pay? Kelan po ba nag re remit ang mga kumpanysa hindi po ba once a yr lang?

Thanks po sa mga makakatulong :)

    u need an hr specialist to help you with this one.

    This is what i know:
    1. you will get a tax refund if your annual income is not more than the taxable income;
    2. you overpayed your taxes (which happens most of the time since your annual income is assumed by people who compute for taxes)

    of course, dont expect that all the taxes you paid will be given back to you. again, that depends on your aggregate income.

    also, if you worked for more than a month, then you should be receiving pro- rated 13th month pay and if u qualify for leave (VL/SL) conversion then make sure it is credited to you.

    other fringe benefits apply but of course that will depend on the company that you used to work for.

    You can get your backpay after 2 months..It depends on your company..Computations?If you stayed for more than a year, you got 1 month salary plus the tax refund,vl and also the 13 month pay..


    If your salary is 15 per month..
    then you exist for the company for instance 1 yr and 6 months..
    then ginamit mo all ur vl,sl,el for terminal leave,then may tax refund ka pa and 13th month..ganyan lam ko based on my backpay...

    Your equivalent salary from the time the company placed your pay on hold up to the date your resignation becomes effective.

    Any unused VL, SL and other paid days off converted to its cash equivalent.

    Pro-rated 13th month pay and other benefits that can be converted to cash.

    Taxes - The amount they deducted may or may not be returned to you. If they returned the tax money together with your last pay, make sure you do not spend it. Your next employer will annualise your taxes based on your new salary and will deduct a huge amount of money from your pay. Baka wala ka na swelduhin. If they did not return your taxes, then it's fine. You should receive a BIR Form 2316 from your previous employer and it should reflect that. This form should be given to your next employer. The new employer will determine your tax deductions from this document (of course, factoring in your new annual pay).

    hey guys.. question.. meron po ba LAW about giving backpay? like if the company fails to give the backbay to their previous emplyees on a certain date? parang me nakita me before na dapat maibigay un backpay within 45days something like that e.. im not sure though..

    ^ Wala atang time frame... unlike the 13th month... it should be given to the employees on or before Dec 15 o else you can file a complaint sa DOLE.

    Backpay includes 13mnth, last work rendered, cash leaves ( if meron sa company ninyo ), tax refund ( if not consumed within a year).
  • pipaypeepspipaypeeps Pipay di Eksplorer ✭✭
    ay.. kala ko the company needs to give it to you in a specific span of time.. hmm... dapat maggawa ng law about this abay di biro kaya un maghintay ng backpay esp when you dont have work..
  • hi, if i've worked for 2 years & 5 months in a BPO company and have 6 unused VL's/SL's,
    does it mean i get the following:

    13th-month pay (how much if my basic pay is 15K? i really don't understand the term "pro-rated 13th-month pay")
    6 X rate/day
    final pay for working 7 days after cut off
    tax refunds (if any)

    please enlighten me. please! kung pwede, paki-compute & explain things in tagalog. thanks a lot!

    Hi! here's the formula
    Backpay is not computed in the number of years you stayed with the company, it is the number of months you stayed in a calendar year.

    13 month pay computation
    Basic Pay/ 12 months X No. of months = Prorated 13th month
    Ex. Agent X left the company on August 31, 2012, August = 8th month in the calendar year
    Assuming your basic pay = 20,000
    20,000/12 = 1666.68 monthly prorated 13th month pay
    1666.68 X 8 month = 13,333 Prorated 13th month due to the separating employee

    Computation for your unclaimed salary is dependent on your company's cut off
    Unclaimed salary = daily rate X No. days still payable to employee

    Tax withhold by the company may be refunded back to you, only if you've worked with the company less than 6 months


    Prorated 13th month + Unused VL + Unclaimed Salary = BACKPAY
  • shocks i don't get it!!

    basic salary = 15K
    hiring date: january 18 2012
    date of resignation: june 30 2012

    so if i'll get my "pro-rated 13th month" included in my back pay, how much will it be?

    If you are a daily-paid employee, the formula depends on your work schedule.
    For example, if your work is only five days a week, you can compute your daily rate as follows:

    If the workweek schedule is 40-hour workweek, use 262.

    monthly rate x 12 / 262 = Daily Rate
    15,000 X 12/262 = P687 daily rate

    Assuming that your company's cut off is 15th and 30th and they are holding 15 days system

    11 X 687 = P 7557 will be included in your backpay

    For you prorated 13th month, Since you were hired January 18, 2012, that is approximately equivalent to 5.5 months in a calendar year

    15,000/12 = 1250
    1250 X 5.5 = 6875 prorated 13th month

    Also, you worked less than 6 months
    Assuming you are earning a taxable income a month of 18000, inclusive of your 20% night diff and OT
    18,000 X 0.15 = 2,700 monthly withholding tax

    5.5 X 2700 = 14,850 total tax withheld for 5.5 months tenure with the company

    Backpay = Prorated 13th month + Unclaimed salary + Withholding tax
    = 6875 + 7557 + 14850
    = P29,282 if the withholding tax will be returned to you by your employer
    = P14,432 exclusive of the withholding tax

    To summarize you may either get P29,282 or P14,432

    date hired nov 2009; date resigned feb 2012;
    basic pay: 15k. company does not pay unused vl/sl. pls. help to compute. tnx a lot! :)
  • Hi! Can someone compute this for me as well?

    Basic Pay: P18, 200
    Hired date: July 30, 2007
    Date resigned: December 14, 2012

    I have 5.2k loan left from SSS and 10 days vacation with pay.
    I still received a salary on the 25th (our pay day is on the 10th and 25th of the month).

    When I contacted the company's Payroll department, they said I have 1k left from the backpay and since I have a loan from SSS my backpay went negative. When I asked about my 10 days vacation with pay, she said it is forfeited. :/

    Thank you in advance to anyone who will provide an answer. ^__^

    what if nag resign ka ng January 1? does that mean na ang tax refund+leaves lang ang magiging computation ng backpay?
