How to Calculate PCB Only
In default calculations, the software will automatically deduct EPF deduction of RM333.33 for the PCB Calculation. In the example above, note that the wages subject to PCB is 5966.67 and not the gross pay of 6,300. To use the software only to calculate the PCB and not the full salary, do the following.
Choose “No EPF” for EPF Rate and “No SOCSO” for Socso category. This way the software will calculate PCB for the gross salary. There will be no EPF, SOCSO and EIS calculations. You can also get the same result just using “No EPF”

The results from Actpay and this PCB calculator will not be the same. Computerised PCB calculations as based on YTD (Year to Date) income, but the eCP39 and this software PCB calculations are based on monthly income. Both calculations are accepted by LHDN.
