Month Days for Calculation
While processing salary, working days considered will differ in a few organisations. There are two options available here:
Custom days : Working days to be entered for every month.
For instance: In a month of 30 days if there are 4 Sundays, then working days will be 26. The application will calculate for 26 days.
All days : Complete month days will be considered for salary processing.
In the Monthly salary, final salary will be computed and displayed. If you want to round off the calculated value, you can configure the same.
