How do I add holiday pay for an employee and can I see the holidays they have accrued?

Hello superior123,

 

At the moment QuickBooks Online Payroll it is not possible to see an employees accrued holiday. We're always looking at ways that we can improve our payroll features and we can understand this could be beneficial for our customers. Please leave this as feedback on this link which can then be explored by our product engineers who can then look at the idea of implementing it into a future update to our current payroll product. 

 

You can add a separate rate of pay as holiday on a payslip for your employees. To do this go to the employee section and find the employee you wish to add holiday pay for, then in the bottom right hand corner you will be able to see a green + icon. There you will have options for Added pay, Deductions and Leave. Select Added pay and then when you choose an option you will have the ability to rename this as 'Holiday pay' or however you wish to record this. Then when running your payroll it will give you the option to add the amount on this pay rate which will be under a separate heading on your payslip.

 

Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

Hello, Welcome to the Community

 

Can I ask which payroll you are using? If it is Paysuite when you click on employees on the left hand side it should say powered by Paysuite in the top right if not you are using Quickbooks Online Payroll

 

Kind regards

Has there been any progress on tracking accrued holiday pay for employees that are paid hourly?

Hi The Raven Hotel

 

Following on from my previous response our new payroll software will allow you to trach holiday entitlement, again, this product is in the testing phase and you will not have telephone support only email support.

Surely some update on this?

Hi Robcc03

 

The QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll does not account for accrued holiday entitlement. You can, if you wish, use the QuickBooks Online Advanced Payroll which does account for the above.

If you would like to use the advanced payroll you will have to contact our telephone support team who can arrange the switch. At the present time the price of the advanced payroll is the same as the standard if you sign up to it before the 1st of November 2019 however from April next year you will be charged an additional £8/month payroll subscription charge. If you sign up to the advanced payroll on or after November the 1st 2019 you will be charged the additional £8/month as well as the employee charges.

How do I add holiday pay for an employee and can I see the holidays they have accrued?

Hi there, I am new to Advanced Payroll and like others it seems, have questions about holidays. We allow all staff an allowance which, depending on service length, varies from 20 days to 25 days. We currently track holidays via an excel spreadsheet and a signing in sheet, to ensure that people do not ask for or take more holiday than they are entitled to. We do not have a separate holiday code in our accounts so if they take 3 days holiday in a month, they are paid in full for that month.

Can QBAP enable me to carry on with this and track holiday allowance against days taken, without having to set up a new pay code or will i still have to keep my excel spreadsheet to track holidays?

Many thanks

Hello AlanWB, 

 

Welcome to the Community page, 

 

If you have a look at this article it tells you all about Advanced payroll and it includes setting up holidays and timesheets and that for you.

Thanks for the quick response but the help states that there are 6 options but lists 7. However, when look into the AP system, there are only 6 options as the help text states but one of them is not Annual Leave. Am I meant to enter it manually and set up the parameters as you describe it or is my AP version in need of updating. If so, how does that happen?
 
Many thanks

Hello AlanWB, 

 

Thanks for coming back to us, 

 

So the annual leave is one of the default options you should have and if it isn't then you can just set it up and create a leave template. 

 

If you go to Payroll>payroll settings> 4th column along called pay conditions>select leave allowance template > click on the green add top-right > and you can put the information in and save

Sincere apologies Ashleigh1 but this does not appear to work for me. Is there someone that I can arrange a call with, you or one of your colleagues, to chat this through as I am finding it extremely difficult to see how whatever template I set up, transitions to the individuals and effectively maintains a holiday chart in AP. Just to restate, we pay our staff who are all salaried, for their annual leave which can range from 20 to 25 days per year. I simply wish to record their holidays taken and let me know how many days they have left to took in that specific holiday year which runs from 1st April to 31st March each year.
