Payroll Processing > System Items > Annual Bonus

SimplePay has a built-in item to accommodate the CPF treatment and tax reporting requirements for annual bonuses. An annual bonus is a reward (often performance-based) paid to an employee, usually at the end of the year or in the employee’s birthday month. To add an annual bonus to a payslip:

  • Go to the Employee’s profile
  • Click on Add (next to Payslip Inputs)
  • Select Annual Bonus under Income
  • Enter an amount
  • Click Save

Annual bonuses are classified as Additional Wages (AW) and impact the calculation of CPF. To read more about CPF, go to the following help page:
