    Wage Type /561 will be forming as Claims for negative amounts instead of /560.

    Assign G/L account to /561 via symbolic account with proper posting characteristics for the Symbolic account.

    Only thing to be noted is, after posting the particular amount through this wage type, the amount will be there in the G/L as uncleared amount.

    In future, whenever/560 is generated for that employee the entry will be getting balanced / nullified.

    Thanks and Regards

      Hi !

      I too had similar error but what happnd with me is that I eliminated an emi of loan for that particular month for that emp which the client also wish to do as they dont want an -ve net pay and so the error was resolved.

      If possible the 100 deduction that u have can be eliminated for this month so that by next month we can deduct this amt!
