Public Holidays for full time workers



With full time employees do you need to list public holidays separately in their pay? Also do public holidays accrue annual leave?

Re: Public Holidays for full time workers

Hi there @kazziekaz1,


Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum.


You can either create a new payroll category called 'Public Holidays' to account for this, or you can simply pay them via the typical wage category (e.g. base hourly / salary). If you do create a new payroll category for public holidays, do ensure you tick the box to 'Automatically Adjust Base Hourly or Base Salary Details'. We advise that you consult your bookkeeper regarding this as they may want you to record this in a specific way.


In regards to your second query, public holidays do generally accrue annual leave as they are considered a 'typical' working day (just without the employee working). Again, if you're unsure as to your situation, we do advise you check with your bookkeeper.


Additionally, the following thread How to record public holidays in AccountRight may assist you with your initial query.


Do let us know how you go, and feel free to post again anytime you require.

Warm Regards,
