I am setting up Essentials payroll for a client and have just discovered that it includes allowances paid to employees in Gross Earnings when calculating annual leave rates.

Employers need to be aware that Essentials Payroll is incorrectly increasing the leave rate payable to employees. I think a fix for this should be an urgent priority, and in the short term a warning should be included when adding allowances to employees.
