# Proration by Last Salary Change Date

When creating a template, in the Proration Rules section, a component can be prorated by Last Salary Change Date.

When a component is prorated by Last Salary Change Date, the component proration is calculated if the employee had a change in salary within the compensation task's compensation period.

• If the employee has not had a salary change within the compensation period, then the employee will receive guidelines and contribute budget based upon a 100% proration percentage. That is, the employee will not be prorated.
• Adjustment guideline defines the recommended amounts in the compensation plan.
• Full budget definition applies to the employees.
• If the employee has had a salary change within the compensation period, then the employee will receive guidelines and contribute budget based upon the number of days between the Last Salary Change Date and the end of the compensation period. That is, the employees will have a proration percentage that is less than or equal to 100%. If there have been more than one salary changes within the compensation period, then the proration is calculated from the most recent salary change within the compensation period.
• Proration Percentage = <Number of days between Last Salary Change Date and end of compensation period including Last Salary Change Date and last day of compensation period> / <Number of days in compensation period>
• Proration percentage is calculated and rounded to the nearest fourth decimal place before being applied to other calculations.
• Budget = <Full budget calculation> * <Proration percentage>
