Related setup tasks 

Use the Calculation procedure groups form to set up a group of calculation procedures. When you create a calculation procedure group, Microsoft Dynamics AX assigns a numeric identification code to the group. The calculation procedures are processed in ascending order of the procedure group numbers. You can use the group numbers to organize the dependent procedures in a hierarchy. For example, you can include the calculation procedures for basic accruals such as basic wages, vacation, and sick pay that are included in the first group. You can include the procedures that are dependent upon the accruals in the second group, procedure to calculate the income tax for private individuals in the third group, and procedures to calculate other deductions, such as fines, borrowings, or alimonies, in the final group.
To set up a calculation procedure group, follow these steps:

Click Payroll (Russia) > Setup > Calculation > Calculation procedure groups.

Click New or press CTRL+N to create a group. Microsoft Dynamics AX automatically updates the next group number in the sequence in the Group code field.

In the Description field, enter a description for the procedure group.

Click Calculation procedures to open the Calculation procedures form, where you can create or modify the procedures that are included in the group. For more information, see 2. Set up a calculation procedure.
Use the Calculation procedures form to set up a procedure for payroll calculation. You can also group calculation procedures, and define the order of processing for them. For more information about calculation procedure groups, see 1. Set up a calculation procedure group.
Microsoft Dynamics AX categorizes each calculation procedure as a system procedure or a general procedure. System procedures are automatically created when you select the corresponding configuration keys in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 Payroll for Russia Feature Pack. For more information, see Technical information for system administrators. The configuration keys include the following predefined system procedures:

Timesheet

Contract calculation

Employee average earnings calculation

Note You can view the list of all of the calculation procedure groups, sorted by their group codes on the Calculation order FastTab.

In the Group code field, select the numeric identification code of the group for the calculation procedures. The calculation procedures from the same hierarchy are processed in the order of the identification codes of the procedures. The calculation procedures that relate to several groups are calculated sequentially based on the sequence of the numeric identification code of the groups.

In the Procedure code and Name fields, enter an identification code and a name for the calculation procedure.

On the General FastTab, select the Delete previous calculation check box to delete all of the data from previous calculations before processing the new calculation. When you calculate procedures for the second and subsequent calculation dates in a calculation period, the salary lines that were calculated on the previous calculation date are deleted, and new salary lines on the current calculation date are created.

In the Main group code field, select the main procedure to which the selected sub procedure belongs. The main calculation procedure is not calculated until all of the subordinate procedures are calculated. This helps you define the order of processing for a specific procedure.

Click Sequences to open the Sequence of calculation form, where you can set up the calculation sequence that defines the calculation order of the values for the pay types and counters. For more information about how to set up sequences for calculation procedures, see 3. Set up sequences for calculation procedures. Close the form.
