Hibou Odoo Suite: Kansas State Payroll
The purpose of this documentation is to outline the use case and processes associated with Hibou's Kansas State Payroll module for Odoo. The Kansas State Payroll module includes contribution registers and calculations for the Kansas Department of Revenue.
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 - Kansas - Payroll'. When ready, hit Install.
Good to Know!
The Kansas 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 Kansas 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 K-4 document:
KS Filing Status: Employee's Kansas Filing Status found on line 3 of the completed K-4 document.
K-4 Allowances: The number of allowances from Line 4 of the completed K-4 document.
Additional Withholding: Any additional withholding found on line 5 of the completed K-4 document.
It is also important to enter W4 information in the US Federal Filing tab, 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 a new partner and contribution register for the Kansas Department of Revenue. Additionally, it adds a contract level Kansas Income Tax Rate along with a company level Kansas Unemployment Rate.
