Payroll Processing > System Items > Commission (Monthly / Non-Monthly)

SimplePay has built-in items to accommodate the special tax and reporting requirements related to commission. It is important to distinguish between regular monthly commission and irregular non-monthly commission, as these are treated differently for CPF and reporting purposes. Monthly Commission is classified as Ordinary Wages (OW), whereas Non-Monthly Commission is classified as Additional Wages (AW).
