We have released an update this month fixing several issues and introducing new functionality for Employee and VAT.
New VAT options:
VAT defaults - when starting a new plan VAT can be set to on or off. This can be changed in Settings for existing plans and will affect all subsequently added components with VAT.
Two VAT rates & custom rate - There are now two VAT rates in Finance Settings. Components can be set to run off either rate, or a custom rate.
Inclusive/Exclusive VAT - Component VAT calculations can be set calculate VAT on top of the figures entered in the component, or be included in the figures entered.
New Employee options:
Employer NI rates - in Finance Settings you can set NI rates for the plan, consisting of an NI rate payable below a threshold, a monthly salary threshold and an NI rate payable on salary amounts above the threshold.
Apply NI to Employees - in Employee components, NI can be switched on. This will add NI, if applicable, to the staff costs generated by the Employee component.
Employer Pension Contribution - this new field in Employee components adds a pension contribution as a % of employee salary to the staff costs generated by the Employee component.
Timeout forms fixed - fixed bug where timeout forms cannot be typed into if a component form is opened.
Stability and crash fixes - fixed serious issues where plans can be saved blank.
Reorder bugs fixed - re-ordering components using drag and drop could produce inconsistently ordered lines in reports.
Incorrect mouseover info on Cost Breakdown chart - mouseover amounts on cost breakdown were doubling.
Drag & drop issues on timeline - visual bug - timeline rows could appear to be in incorrect places when dragged and dropped back to their original positions.
Inventory Manual input always monthly - Inventory always calculated monthly amounts - it now calculates quarterly when set to quarterly and yearly when set to yearly. Existing Inventory components set to Manual need to be re-saved in order for this change to take effect.
VAT causing imbalance on Balance Sheet - in the last update VAT was causing an imbalance on the Balance Sheet - this has now been fixed.
Copy bugs - visual bug - disabled components can appear enabled when copied.
Double clicking can open components - double clicking on components now renames, rather than opens.
Fixed scrolling on Edge - previously slow scrolling on Edge browser.
Moving components when Add Component Panel open - now works!
Tables in components round incorrectly when switching between Months, Quarters and Years.
Group Cost of Sales no longer becomes attached to Income when dragged
