Sweldong Pinoy At 4

Sweldong Pinoy is now 4! The first version of Sweldong Pinoy was released on April 3, 2012. You can check out highlights of the past 4 years at http://timeline.sweldongpinoy.com.

Sweldong Pinoy was originally made as a salary calculator for Filipinos in computing net pay, withholding taxes and contributions to SSS, PhilHealth and PAG-IBIG. Since then, we have added additional features (like OT, night differential, etc). We have also added versions for Minimum Wage Earners, RHQ/ROHQ employees, government employees, etc.

Other than Sweldong Pinoy, we have also developed Thirteenth Month, a tool for Filipinos in computing their 13th-month pays. We are also working on iOS versions of the existing Android apps (sorry for the delay! for the meantime, you can go to sweldongpinoy.com on your iOS devices). We'll also be launching a new app that could help you in budgetting your salary.

Thanks to everyone who have used and who are still using our apps. There are still a lot of things to be done and we welcome your messages, comments, and suggestions. Email us at info@sweldongpinoy.com or send us a message.

Sweldong Pinoy in 2015

Most of the changes to Sweldong Pinoy this year was on performance improvements and design enhancements. Here are some of the updates to Sweldong Pinoy throughout 2015.

Sweldong Pinoy Updates

We have released Sweldong Pinoy for Minimum Wage Earners on April. Our apps our apps will no longer deduct withholding taxes for employees earning minimum wage if you select "Minimum Wage Employee" in the Employee Type.



Other updates:
  • For employees with daily pays, you can now provide the actual number of days and the app will compute your salary based on this instead of the previous default of 20. This is because not everyone works for 20 days in a given month.
  • We have also improved the computation for the hourly and daily rates which are being used in salary computation, like the night differential and overtime pays.
  • The apps now compute night differential based on number of hours instead of the days
  • Minor changes like moving compute button to right and clear button to the left




Thirteenth Month Updates

For Thirteenth Month, we had two updates to the apps: setting the ceiling for non-taxable thirteenth month to 82,000 pesos (pursuant to Republic Act No. 10653, which was approved on February 12, 2015) and computing for thirteenth-month pay based on the actual weeks inputted by the user.

Sweldong Pinoy for Minimum Wage Earners and Other Updates

Sweldong Pinoy for Minimum Wage Earners


One of the requested features for Sweldong Pinoy is to update the app for employees earning minimum wage. Pursuant to Republic Act No. 9504, minimum wage earners are exempted to tax. Now, our apps will not deduct withholding taxes for employees earning minimum wage if you select "Minimum Wage Employee" in the Employee Type before computing your salary.



Other Updates


Aside from Sweldong Pinoy for Minimum Wage Earners, we also have some other updates for Sweldong Pinoy:
  • For employees with daily pays, you can now provide the actual number of days and the app will compute your salary based on this instead of the previous default of 20. This is because not everyone works for 20 days in a given month.
  • We have also improved the computation for the hourly and daily rates which are being used in salary computation, like the night differential and overtime pays.
  • The apps now compute night differential based on number of hours instead of the days
  • Minor changes like moving compute button to right and clear button to the left


These updates are available in http://sweldongpinoy.com, in version 2.5 of the Android app (rolling out now), and in all our apps. If you have any feedback or feature requests, please send us a message.

Sweldong Pinoy in 2014

It has been a great year for Sweldong Pinoy. There were major and minor updates to the apps and we released a new app.

Computation Updates

The year started with increases in the deductions for PhilHealth and SSS contributions based from PhilHealth Circular 27 s.2013 and SSS Circular 2013-010. Sweldong Pinoy apps were updated on January 4 to compute the new deductions based on these new tables.

Android Tablet App

After a bit of delay, the tablet-optimized version of the Sweldong Pinoy Android app has been released.

Sweldong Pinoy for Government Employees

Sweldong Pinoy was updated for Government employees. Instead of SSS deductions, what the government employees have is GSIS (Government Service Insurance System) contributions. Government employees will just select "Government Employee" in the Employment Type and the app will compute the GSIS contribution instead of the SSS contribution, other deductions, and net pay.
