New Thirteenth Month

It's (almost) Christmas! One of the things Filipinos look forward to this time is the thirteenth month pay. Almost six years ago, we developed a tool for Filipinos in computing their 13th-month pays called Thirteenth Month.

With the Thirteenth Month app, users can input their salary and find out around how much their Thirteenth Month Pay will be. In the initial version, they need to provide the monthly salary and their starting month and ending month. We then added an option to provide starting and ending weeks to be more accurate. This works if you have the same salary year round. However, this is not always the case in real life. People get salary increases or sometimes move to another job with a higher pay.

Now, users can input their salaries from January to December. If they have the same salary for the year, they can select "My salary is the same for the whole year" and provide the salary, starting/ending week/month like before. The text fields for the months will …

Budget Pinoy for Everyone

Budget Pinoy is a tool for Filipinos in finding out how much their asking salary should be based on their budget. The app will even tell you how much to save per category per pay day.

After you provide your Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, or Annnual budgets, the app will compute and display the asking rate you need to earn enough for your total budget. This uses the contributions and taxes for a "Private Employee" by default.

We have now added a dropdown for employment type so users can select their employment type instead of the default. When you change the employment type, the app will update the deductions and asking rate accordingly. This update is available now at and on version 1.1 of the Budget Pinoy Android app (which is rolling out now). on mobile browser with the employment type drop-down

Sweldong Pinoy for Self-Employed Individuals

When we launched Sweldong Pinoy in 2012, our apps initially computed net pay, withholding taxes and contributions to SSS, PhilHealth and PAG-IBIG for private employees. Over the years, we have added computations for Government Employees, RHQ/ROHQ employees, and Minimum Wage Earners.

We're happy to announce that now, we're adding computations for Self-Employed Individuals in Sweldong Pinoy. They pay for the employer and employee shares for SSS, PhilHealth, and Pag-IBIG. You just need to select "Self-Employed Individual" in the employment type and the app will compute the contributions for SSS, PhilHealth, and Pag-IBIG Fund, tax, and other contributions, as well as how much your net will be.

Sweldong Pinoy for Self-Employed Individuals is available now on and on version 4.3 of the Sweldong Pinoy Android app, which is rolling out now. updated with computations for Self-Employed
