Annual Leave Not Accuring

I've taken over accounts for my employer and I've noticed that none of her 3 staff have Personal or Holiday leave accrued even though they've been in the system and employed since early July. Is there a way where I can get their leave owing accrued without entering pay slips again (it doesn't matter if I have to). I know they have leave owing. Please help!

Hi Kellie,

You can manually work out what leave they should have and just add it into their leave details area, by double clicking on the employee > change tabs to payroll and compensation info > click on leave details tab > then you will see personal and holiday leave tabs at the top and just add it to hours available.

Then just add a note to their record as to what you have done as the historical leave report will jump!

Kind regards,

Can someone please reply. As there is not one single document with step to step instruction on setting up annual leave. I am new to the payroll side & am trying to set up annual leave for our employees, they work 38Hr weeks.

I have entered 2.92 in the 'hours accrued per pay' & 160.00 in the 'maximum amount of hours'. the 2.92 seems to convert to 2:55 for some reason also.

Also how do you work out how many hours an employee has accrued from their start date as this system has still not been set up properly the staff currently have 0.

EG: they started on the 12 August & should have been accruing 2.92 hours of annual leave per pay. how can I calculate this?

Some leave accruals that were changed this way (over the end/start of FY, will not accrue correctly even when you adjust the leave details. Reckon are working on this and will provide a solution to those that need it - soon(please)

Hi Brooke,

Thanks for asking the Reckon community.

You'll find information about annul leave in the Help index - search for holiday leave time and leave details.

Also, on the installation disk you'll find a user guide in PDF format.

For past payroll transactions that did not include leave accrual you can manually enter outstanding leave in the Hours available box of the Leave Details tab in the Employee Record (number of payroll periods time accrual rate for payroll period).   

When you enter 2.92 and the number changes to 2:55 its because you have your preferences set to display time as  minutes and seconds and not decimals of an hour.  You can change this in the General Preference settings:

Hope this helps.
