What is Zoho Payroll Gratuity Calculator?
The Zoho Payroll Gratuity Calculator is used to calculate the sum of money a person will receive as gratuity, based on how long they have worked in an organisation. It factors in salary components such as Basic Pay, Dearness Allowance, and service duration.
Formula used to calculate gratuity for employees covered under the Gratuity Act of 1972:
Gratuity Amount = 15 days Average Pay * Tenure of Working
Average Pay = ((Last drawn Basic + DA) / 26 working days of a month) * 15 days
Formula used to calculate gratuity for employees not covered under the Gratuity Act of 1972:
Gratuity Amount = 15 days Average Pay * Tenure of Working
Average Pay = ((Last drawn Basic + DA) / 30 working days of a month) * 15 days

How does Zoho Payroll process gratuity?
In Zoho Payroll, gratuity will be calculated automatically during termination if the employee has completed 5 or more years in the organisation. It will be calculated based on this formula:
Gratuity Amount = 15 days Average Pay * Tenure of Working
