Public Holiday Hours Are Deducting From Holiday Accrual

Hi, I seem to be having an issue when entering Public Holiday hours into payroll..

We are using Reckon Accounts Hosted.

As I was going through the normal procedure of processing payroll, I noticed every time I entered in the 7.6 hrs into 'Public Holiday' it would deduct those hours from the employees accrued holiday hours, and for the other employee who had taken one day of Annual Leave, when I selected Holiday Loading it added the Loading onto the hours entered under Public Holiday as well.

I've gone into the payroll items list and nothing seems to be out of the ordinary... Am I missing something?? 

Thanks in advance!

    Yeah, that's how we normally process them as we don't operate on Public Holidays.. but for some reason it is deducting from the holiday accrual as if it were a holiday, likewise, the holiday loading is being applied even though it hasn't been entered as a 'Holiday'. So the issue is, how do I edit the item to make sure it doesn't keep deducting from the accrued leave?

    Hmm, the lady who was doing wages before me showed me this way.. however, this is a dual user, so I'm wondering if it is possible that what showed up on her list might be slightly different then mine? As in, she might have added the item to her list but it doesn't show up on mine?

    Okay, it's really quite bizarre - I may need to look into it a bit more, she told me to process the annual leave on a separate pay slip and then we will go back and try fix it.. but because it wasn't processed as one sum it has affected how the PAYG tax generates, and it's not right (quite different to what it should be around) - so I was hoping it may have been a straight forward answer and I could start again, but it doesn't look like it is. :o

    Thanks Kevin, I think I may have found one of the issues.. I went back in to check the items, and the 'Public Holiday' has been listed as a 'Holiday Hourly:Public Holiday'.. so this is probably why it's generating as if it was annual leave? only It doesn't have anywhere I can change it.. and I found the 'Public Holidays' item she was talking about under 'Other Payroll' items.. So I might process the ones that I can and go back to the 2 payroll's in question.

    Yep, I just did a little test, and I think I've got it.. well at least to process them today.. If I go through and 'Void' the payslips I generated this morning I should be able to start again, right? it will reset the hours accrued as if I had never done the payslips this morning??

    I know there have been the same issue in the past, but I have tried (it seems to me) every which way to fix this up. Public holidays are being taken off employees annual leave hours also the leave loading has to be recorded separately with STP Phase 2 and again these hours are coming off annual leave hours. So if employee has a day off, its recording 7.6 hrs plus the 7.6 hrs loading.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi @numberplateads

    Public Holidays should be set up exactly the same as your normal “HourlyPayroll Item. It sounds like it’s been set up to link to leave 🤔

    Unfortunately, that particular configuration is only available at initial setup so you won’t be able to change it but just create a new Payroll Item for it ☺️
