Public Holiday deducting from leave hours



I created a new company file at the start of the financial year and this is the first time I've had to process a public holiday.

As far as I can see I have set up all the payroll items just as it was in the previous file, however when I entered the public holiday item today, I noticed it deducted the hours from one of our 'other leave' items.

I can't seem to find a way to prevent this or see where I have gone wrong in the setup.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Lynne

    It sounds like it has been incorrectly configured AS a Leave type (instead of to ATTRACT Leave entitlements) on this window during setup:

    Unfortunately, this particular configuration is only accessible during initial setup & can't be edited. Therefore, you will need to (correctly) set up the Public Holiday Payroll Item again - NB (Assuming it's for unworked payment entitlement) it should be the same as your standard Hourly/Salary Payroll Item(s) in terms of PAYG, Super & Leave entitlements.

    Thanks Shaz, that's what I've done. When I was setting up the new item I noticed the page you've put above and wondered if that's where I maybe went wrong.

    I've made the change in all the payslips and the leave changed back to the correct amount.

    I'm glad the way I fixed it is the same as what you're suggesting 😊

    Thanks for your help.
