Calculating leave accurately is key, we’ve got you sorted!
There’s been a lot of talk in the media lately about payroll software businesses getting Annual Leave calculations wrong.
The Holidays Act defines annual leave entitlements in weeks and other leave entitlements in days, but most payroll systems record annual leave in hours. This can make it difficult to demonstrate and maintain compliance. To help you feel more confident you’re complying with the Act, we recommend holding annual leave balances in weeks and other leave balances in days. That’s what we’ll set you up with when you sign up to SmartPayroll, so you can ensure your employees are receiving their correct leave entitlements.
