FAQs Social Insurances & Taxes

We answer the most frequently asked questions here. Fast and uncomplicated.

Can I transmit the data electronically to my compensation office / insurance company / tax office?

At the moment, only paper output is possible. We are working on electronic transmission and will be among the first manufacturers to offer ELM in version 5.0.

Where can the national maximum contributions or the percentages for the AHV deduction be en-tered?

All national calculation parameters are automatically updated by the programme.  Contribution rates for individual accident or daily sickness benefit insurances can be adjusted at any time in the insurance master.

My family compensation fund uses a different contribution rate. How do I proceed?

AbaSalary uses the cantonal FEF contribution rates by default.  However, depending on the compensation fund, different percentages may be applied.  An individual percentage rate can therefore also be entered in the insurance master.

How are insurance daily allowances accounted for?

The daily allowances paid by the insurance companies can either be offset against the salary or paid out directly. There are payroll types for the usual daily allowance compensations.

Where do the withholding tax rates come from?

21.AbaSalary uses the rates published by the Federal Tax Administration for the automatic WT calculation.
