Long Service Leave

Hi all,


I have a few part-timers that hours can vary a little each week.  Both have been working for 4 & 5 years here.  In regards to LSL, I usually just keep a printout of their hours for each year and when the time comes when staff are eligible, calculate their LSL entitlement then. That is, total ord hours worked / 52 x 8.6667 / 10 = LSL hours


But with the introduction of Q-Leave Portable Long Service Leave in this particular industry, I will need to work out how much is due each quarter to pay over to Q-Leave. 


How would I calculate this if one is 5 years and the other is 4 years and no MYOB calculations have been entered as yet.  I know MYOB has the percentage option, but as hours can vary each week, would this percentage always be the 1.6667% regardless? But then I would need to work out what the entitlement is as at today?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Kind regards,

Re: Long Service Leave

Hi @monsta76 


Thanks for your post. Personally I would set your employees up to accrue long service leave in AccountRight. The Business Queensland website has a calculator to help you work out exactly what your employees have accrued to date. You can then process a $0 pay and add the hours to the long service leave entitlement category. This help article will guide you through setting up and accruing LSL: Long Service Leave


Once you've set that up you can set up portable long service leave: Portable long service leave


Please let me know if you need further help.
