FAQs

What do I pay an employee who works a public holiday?

If an employee works a public holiday, they are entitled to be paid time-and-a-half for the hours worked. And, if the public holiday happens to fall on a day they normally work, they're also entitled to a day in lieu.

What if a public holiday falls on a weekend?

There are special arrangements for public holidays over the Christmas and New Year period, and for Waitangi Day and ANZAC Day.

Public holidays over the Christmas and New Year period
If a public holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, and the employee:
- doesn't usually work that day, the holiday is transferred to the following Monday or Tuesday. The employee still gets a paid day off if they usually work on these days.
- usually works that day, the holiday remains at the traditional day and the employee is entitled to a paid day off.

Note that an employee can't be entitled to more than four public holidays over the Christmas and New Year period, regardless of their work roster.

Waitangi Day and Anzac Day
If the public holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday and the employee:
- doesn't usually work that day, the holiday is transferred to the following Monday so that the employee still gets a paid day off.
- usually works that day, the holiday remains at the traditional day and the employee is entitled to a paid day off.

How do I delete a transaction?

Go to Utilities options > Delete Transaction > double click the transaction you want to delete and click Go. This trasnsaction now appears in red and won’t show in any reports. You can get the transaction back by following these steps and double clicking it again. .

Why is the leave rate higher than the normal pay rate?

Remember that the leave rate is the higher on the average weekly rate or the ordinary weekly pay. Average weekly pay includes things like overtime, regular bonus and commissions.

How do I restore a backup?

Open your payroll file, go to the Utilities menu and select Back and Restore. Note that you will replace your current file when you restore the back up.
