Question? We add 2.43% to each service that is not commissionable, i.e., the service provider’s commission is calculated after taking the 2.43% off the service, can this be done easily?
Answer; Yes we call this a deduction before commission. It can be a flat rate or percentage according to each type of service or a global setting for all services. There are many options in the payroll commissions that can meet most calculations for commission structure.
- Payroll commission has 28 different levels with 9 rates within each level. It has salon deductions for either a dollar amount per item or a % amount per item. Or, you can have a salon deduction for the whole ticket in a dollar amount or %. See attached payroll options and employee record. Once all the employee records are set up, a payroll is run to compare to your existing payroll system. Once it matches, payroll calculations are hands free until you change the plans again.
- VCS payroll commissions app uses the VCS time clock to track employee productivity. The time clock is an option and commissions can be paid based on how employees are clocked in. There are up to 20 different user selectable pay types such as productive service, training, meetings, vacation, holiday, sick, etc. Each pay type can be tied to a rate of pay. For instance you can clock in under productive service at 10am and clock out and back in under training at 12pm and pay that employee at two different rates for those hours.
- The productivity report produces # of retail and service guests, amount of service and retail dollars, total hours and a per hour productivity rate based on service dollars divided by service hours. You can then establish a productivity rate based on overhead and tie that to payroll commissions. For instance, your rate could be $50.00/hour. Anyone not reaching the per hour productivity rate does not get paid commissions on retail as an example.
In order to get this payroll/time clock function working, make an appointment with a customer support representative and send your existing payroll commission plan. Together, set up an employee profile for each employee with his or her level and pay plan. The profiles contain personnel information, termination codes, and pay plan.
