Holiday pay while on ACC

Holiday pay while on ACC

Hi, I haven't been using MYOB for very long. I have taken over paying the wages for my parents business. One of the employee's was recently on ACC for 6 weeks.  I didn't realise her holiday pay should still accrue particularly as she injured herself at her second job ( I am still trying to learn all the employment rules at the same time) I now know that her HP should have been rolling over but as she wasn't getting a wage and I didn't fill out anything for the weeks  she was away, I don't know how to correctly work out and document her entitlement. Can anyone help please?

Re: Holiday pay while on ACC

Hi @Ricketygrand


Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find it a great source of information.


I can see you are posting from New Zealand. The Board you had posted on for AccountRight is designed for the Australian release of the Payroll software. For your region, there are 2 Payroll software releases that you may be using with MYOB:


MYOB Payroll (Desktop software)

Essentials Payroll (Online software)


As the instructions and details can differ between which software you are using, I suggest having a look at the Help Articles below for the relevant software. If you still get stuck, feel free to check out our MYOB Advisor Search to find a Specialist in your area who may be able to help you handle the Calculations.


Essentials Payroll:
Managing your employees' leave

Leave calculations



MYOB Payroll:

Annual leave rate calculation

Processing the first week of Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) wages

Annual leave not updating


I'll also mention @jenniek who is a wiz at Payroll for New Zealand and may be able to offer some extra guidance.
