Cracking the Code of Split Earnings with Oracle Cloud HCM

Have you ever pondered the nuances of split earnings, especially when an employee resides in one state but earns in another? Oracle Cloud HCM emerges as a beacon, ensuring you don’t get caught in the whirlwind of this multi-state conundrum.

Split Earnings: Why Bother?

  • Tax Advantages: By leveraging tax concessions in various states, there’s potential for substantial tax savings for both employees and businesses.
  • State-specific Perks: Employees might qualify for state-centric rewards, including tax discounts or pension schemes.
  • Employee Flexibility: Employees stationed in two states can divide their earnings to maximize tax advantages and work perks, promoting job satisfaction and bolstering retention.

Inside Oracle Cloud HCM’s Approach

Illustrate this with Jane’s story: Living in Connecticut but working in New York, her earnings fall under both states’ tax jurisdictions. Oracle Cloud HCM shines in such cases. Jane’s record gets defined at both tax locales, letting Oracle Cloud HCM adeptly partition her earnings, thereby ensuring taxation accuracy for both territories.

Beyond just tax deductions, Oracle Cloud HCM extends its prowess in offering report generation features, making tax compliance straightforward.

For those intrigued by the behind-the-scenes, this article dives deep into Oracle HCM Cloud’s “Employee Earnings Distribution Overrides” calculation card, exploring the payroll dynamics with or without specific configurations and their subsequent impact.

We will see the payroll run for the tax deduction, within Oracle HCM Cloud, with and without the additional configuration and the difference in payroll result of the tax deduction details.

The payroll runs without any additional configuration.

The total earnings are $3,918.05

  • Salary Earned Results: $3,913.65
  • Earnings result: $4.40

The payroll runs with additional configuration.

Observation on earnings calculation after the “Employee Earnings Distribution Overrides”

  • Salary Earning Results $2,348.19 + $1,565.46 = $3,913.65
  • Earning Results $2.64 + $1.76 = $4.40

The earnings sum for this payroll run is the same as the first.

As a result, earnings are split according to the percentage defined in the “Employee Earnings Distribution Overrides” card creation. I.e.

$3,913.65 * 60% = $2,348.19

$4.40 * 60% = $2.64

Similarly, the remaining earnings are based on a 40% calculation.

$3,913.65 * 40% = $1,565.16

$4.40 * 40% = $1.76

The state tax is also split into two different tax states

This way, the earnings are split into two states, and taxes are calculated accordingly.
