Hibou Odoo Suite: California State Payroll
First thing's first, we need to install the module! Navigate to the Apps application, remove the Apps filter from the search bar and then search for 'USA - California - Payroll'. When ready, hit install.
Good to Know!
The California State Payroll module requires Hibou's USA Payroll module and Odoo's Payroll application. However, if you do not already have these installed, Odoo will install them for you during this module's installation!
To get started, navigate to the Employees application.
Configuring an Employee Contract.
After selecting USA California Employee for the Salary Structure, click on the US State Filing tab.
Fill in the following fields, which are found on the employee's completed DE-4:
CA Filing Status: Employee's California Filing Status
DE-4 Allowances: The number of allowances from Regular Withholding Allowances, Worksheet A on DE-4
Additional Withholding: Number of Allowances from the Estimated Deductions, Worksheet B on DE-4
It is also important to enter W4 information in the US Federal Filing tab section, which is provided by Hibou's USA Payroll module.
Ensure that the status of the contract is Running. A contract that is not Running cannot be used during Payroll. To change this, simply click 'Running' in the status bar on the contract.
This module includes new partners and contribution registers for:
California Department of Taxation - Unemployment Insurance Tax
California Department of Taxation - Income Tax Withholding
California Department of Taxation - Employee Training Tax
California Department of Taxation - State Disability Insurance
It also adds contract-level California Exemptions and California State Disability Insurance along with company-level California Unemployment Insurance Tax and California Employee Training Tax.
