NI (SSC) contributions are calculated during the payroll calculation process, using a number of criteria from the relevant Support filesĀ 

  • Shireburn Indigo HR works out the weekly basic pay based on the basic pay for the payroll period.
  • With the weekly basic pay information at hand, Indigo HR checks the employee's Employment type to determine if any Social Security contributions are to be paid.
  • If SSC Type is No Social Security the process stops and no SSC's are paid. For any other SSC Type, Indigo HR cross-checks SSC Categories to determine the weekly amount to be deducted.
  • The system then deducts the weekly amount for every Monday worked during the payroll period.
