2557142 - [English] AVERA in Colombian payroll calculation


NOTE: A Spanish version of this document is available in this Wiki page.

When you run the payroll driver for a Colombian employee, you may notice that the processes that use AVERA function are presenting incorrect values. Some examples are:

  • Procedimiento Semestral
  • Prima Legal de Servicios
  • Withholding tax for leave bonus (bono de retiro)

One or more out of the following symptoms may occur:

  • A specific Social Security contribution (EPS, AFP, FSP) is not being taken into consideration;
  • Advance contributions made throughout the year are not added to the calculation;
  • The payroll periods selected are not within the expected date range;
  • A specific wage type is being duplicated in the total amount;
  • The withholding report (HCORETE0) does not recognize any data for a specific payroll period;
  • The sum of incomes or deductions does not match the wage type reporter (H99CWTR);
