2019 Tax Release Software and Documents
Definition of a Week / Holiday Start date
After upgrading to the 2019 NZ tax release, you will be able to pay annual leave that spans multiple pay periods at a rate that is compliant with the MBIE guidance.
There is a new tab “Definition Of Week” that allows you to specify what constitutes an employee’s usual work week.
You will be prompted to add these for every new employee. But it is not required unless you are setup to use the new rate rules.
Transaction View will automatically include the employee’s original Holiday Start Date for employees who have submitted a single leave request in ESS, that spans multiple periods.
Note: For all other methods of getting annual leave into Transaction View, the new Holiday Start Date field value defaults to the transaction Start Date. This must be adjusted manually by the payroll user if it is not the correct start date of the leave.
The employee’s holiday pay will be calculated using the new Holiday Start Date when the associated rates are setup to use “H2003calc” rate calculations.
Please refer to release notes and following help articles for further information.
