To help you stay compliant with Inland Revenue, we’ve made a few simple changes to the employee details and pay run pages.
The way you process leave won’t change much, but you’ll need to enter the days your employees work in their employee details page, and the days being paid in each pay run.
These changes affect bereavement leave, alternative holidays, public holidays worked and taken, and sick leave. These types of leave are now paid at a daily rate, rather than an hourly rate.
This post will give you a more detailed explanation.
In terms of your workflow, not a lot.
And that’s it!
If you want the nitty gritty of leave calculation, here are two more facts.
When you set up a pay item the checkbox which formerly said Exclude from AWE OWP calculations checkbox now says Exclude from gross earnings for leave calculations.
The pay item will be excluded from both AWE & OWP (Average Weekly Earnings and Ordinary Weekly pay) calculations and RDP & ADP (Relevant Daily Pay & Average Daily Pay) calculations (i.e. all leave calculations).
Average Daily Pay uses an employee's pay and work history to calculate what they should be paid per day for leave.
Since bereavement leave, alternative holidays, public holidays worked and taken, and sick leave are now calculated using days rather than hours, you’ll need to check that this calculation is correct when you’re paying an employee leave using Average daily pay.
To check, click Gross earnings for 12 months and make sure that the historical days worked are accurate.
Because days worked is a new field, past periods are estimated. The estimated days are marked with an asterisk in the Pay history window.
If the estimate is not correct, close the Pay history window and enter the correct number in the Days worked field.
