Hello Leanne,

Welcome to the Reckon Community.

You will need to calculate the hourly rate of accrual for your circumstances.

Start with the number of hours a full time employee works in a full year and the amount of leave it will earn.  This number will vary according to the length of a normal working week which could be anywhere between 35 and 40 hours.

For example, for a full-time working week of 38 hours (7.6 hours a day) you can calculate the number of accrued annual leave hours each working hour will earn as 152hrs / (38hrs * 52 working weeks).

Hope this helps.

regards,
John.

Thanks John for the reply.  If i put in 0:07:69 into Reckon it changes it to 0:08:09 so i can't work out what to put in to calculate it correctly per hour worked.  We work on a 38 hour week, so it is just a matter of trying to see what other people have put in to get it right.  If you know what i mean.  this is doing my head in.

Hi Leanne,

The colons between the numbers indicates the format is hours:minutes:seconds, so 0:07:69 means 7 minutes and 69 seconds which is the same as 8 minutes and 9 seconds.  Did you mean 7.69 minutes?  You'll need to enter that as 0.12816 hours and Reckon Accounts will display it at 0:07:41.

You can change the display between decimals and h:m:s in Edit > Preferences > General.

For other help on setting rates like this why not consult your industry association and get the precise information you need?

regards,
John
