Paid Annual leave loading hours reducing Annual leave hours

Bakerc Member Posts: 16

Hi all

I'm using Reckon Desktop and since the change of STP2 and having to create two new Annual Leave Loading payroll items our holiday pay (annual leave) liability is being incorrectly calculated when we pay employee's leave and leave loading.

Both payroll items have the tick removed in "include in "Every hour worked" leave accruals.

But for some reason the leave loading hours paid is reducing the holiday entitlements.

I've done screen shots below of the payroll items, can someone please shed some light on what we are doing wrong.

    Hi @Bakerc

    I set up Leave Loading as an Addition because it's not hours-based but rather calculates (17.5%) on gross. If you enter the total gross amount of the annual leave component, it calculates correctly & doesn't incorrectly impact anything else:
