Reckon Hosted still has issue with leave accrual and being restricted to 2 decimal places, and it does not accrue correctly.  This has been going on for years isn't it about time it was fixed.

Further we are restricted to 2 additional tabs we can create ourselves and this is not enough for some industries.  we have unlimited choices int MYOB, but 2 in Reckon, not good enough.

I have a client who tracks P/L A/L TIL RDO & LSL and I do not have a spare tab to create the LSL, so it isn't tracking in Reckon, isn't showing on payslip, and law says leave must show on all payslips.

What do we have to do to get this fixed.

    Not correct. It works perfectly well. You dont need to use decimals either. You can use hours and minutes. Thanks for your post. Long service leave accruals are NOT mandatory on payslips.

    Oh and according to the Fair work site it is NOT mandatory to have annual and personal leave accruals on the payslip. Its great learning new things

    new need to expand you vision past FWC it isn't the be all & end off only a guidline, delve into ATO, industrial relations and awards.

    And it does't calculate properly if using decimal system, pay period, as it needs to be 2.923 and reckon defaults to 2.93 or 2.92, don;t know what calculator you are using

    NOT correct. Modern awards do NOT mandate that lsl accruals show on payslips. In terms of the decimals the difference is insignificant. Ive been doing this for decades.

    and I have been doing this for over 4 decades, not the only one, there are lots of complaints that the leave needs to be more than 2 digit, so we must ALL  be wrong.

    2.92 calculated over 52 weeks on payslips in reckon comes out at 151.84, not 152 that it should be.  It works on a calculator if both set to 2 dec. places, but and the end of 12 months does calculate the same in reckon.

    Yes , regardless what is required for pays lip, this restricon or limitation is been there for ages. This decimal needs to be more flexible . But this requires undoing the payroll codes and rewriting and or adjusting existing codes. Then compIle and test etc all takes time and biggest issue cost . And I think for Reckon is the matter of where the money is best spent. Cost benefit exercise. The focus is cloud software RA1

    There very clearly isnt LOTS of complaints. Yours is the first Ive seen in TEN YEARS. You do know there is other payroll systems they all have their idiosyncracies. None of them get everything right. This issue has never been raised with me, ever.

    Gee Sorry Kevin didn't think I had to raise it with, didn't realise everything had to raised with you first, just Reckon, which I have done many times over the years without success, thought I would try the community.

    thanks Chandra, don't like Reckon one, slow and sluggish, but it comes down to a product still under development and one they have never finished tweaking, wish they would finish hosted, first, it is the bigger better program, not all will want to downsize to Reckon One.

    No need to apologise. If it was a genuine issue Im pretty sure I would have encountered it. Payroll Premier allows you to use four decimal points by the way. Its very good.

    Its ten minutes out of 152 hours. Hardly significant.

    im not sure if your correct Kevin, as my leave accrual is not working on Reckon either. I have tried numerous ways, attempted to use other instead of holiday, etc. Any solutions ??
