Hi there, @IHateQ80. I'm happy to help you enter a lump sum holiday pay into your employee's payroll.
In QuickBooks Online (QBO), you'll be able to track the calculated holiday pay rate by adding a new pay type from your employee's profile. From there, enter the desired rate, then add the hours when running payroll.
To add a new pay type:
Once you process payroll, the payment type will now be added to your employee's pay.

Thanks for reaching out here. QuickBooks Online Payroll is a dynamic program for paying your staff with confidence. I can see how you'd benefit from having the option to add the holiday pay as a lump sum. I'd be happy to provide the information you need so you're on the right track with your work.
QuickBooks Online currently doesn't have a way to enter the holiday pay as a lump sum. As mentioned in your initial post, you'll need to calculate the amount and then convert it into hours to be entered into the holiday field when running payroll.

I need to have as an option in payroll for Hourly Construction employees, to have 3.6% General Holiday Pay added to each paycheque.
Currently I can only had stat holiday pay in hours and not as a percentage.
Is this a possibility?
