Creating Gratuity Pay Head for UAE

An employment contract in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) could be for a limited or an unlimited period.

According to the Federal Law of the UAE, an employee is entitled to receive gratuity after completion of one year of continuous service, irrespective of the contract type, which could be limited or unlimited.

Tally.ERP 9 now supports calculation of gratuity as per the prescribed rules and regulations of the UAE.

To compute gratuity in a UAE Payroll enabled company, you must create two gratuity pay heads - one for a limited contract and another for unlimited contract employee. .
