In Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0, benefits that are set up based on a deduction calculate incorrectly when the Percent of Deduction percentage amount is less than or equal to the Employer Maximum percentage on the Benefit card.
System code changes in previous updates created a necessary change in how the setup should be done in Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 for benefits that are set up to be based on deductions. This only affects Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0, as this version of the product is coded a bit differently than more recent versions.
Option 1: Change the calculation method on the benefit to be based on Percent of Gross Wages.
Option 2: Change the calculation method on the benefit to be a Fixed Amount.
Option 3: Adjust the amounts in the benefits that are Based on the Deduction so that the percent of deduction percentage is higher than the Employer Maximum on the benefit itself.
Example of changing the Benefit so the Employer Maximum is less than the Deduction percentage:
Benefit Employer Maximum- 6%
This would need to be changed to the following:
Benefit Employer Maximum- 3%
