Hi i am trying to process annual leave and it adds the leave loading as a negative number. What do I do

Hi dbplumbingbm, 

 

When it comes to leave loading added on to leave taken it would be first to take a closer look at the leave categories settings if you find it is calculating incorrectly. To check you annual leave's leave loading please use the below steps:

 

To check leave loading follow these steps:

  1. On the payroll dashboard click on the Payroll Settings tab
  2. Click on Leave Categories under the Pay Run Settings heading
  3. Click on the annual leave category. 
  4. In that leave category check the Leave Loading % is correct e.g. 17.5 and does not contain a negative.

If the overall leave category looks fine it would be then best to check the employee you are processing the annual leave for to check if they have their own personal Leave Loading % attached, which can be done via the steps below:
 

Checking the leave loading set for individual employees

  1. Select the employee in question on your employee list, or in the pay run select 'Go to Employee Details.
  2. Then select Leave Allowances
  3. Under the leave category check that they have the 17.5% or perhaps a zero amount for leave loading.

It would also be best that if you are adding leave taken that includes leave loading to try selecting the Recalculate option within the green Actions button within each employee's pay run details, back in the pay run. In some cases when you are making changes to the pay run and have clicked save selecting recalculate can help bring figures back to the correct display.

 

If after checking and trying this you are still seeing the negative number please don't hesitate to reach out to our friendly support team by clicking here.

 

Thanks,
