How do I set up Annual Leave for an employee in payroll?
How do I record Annuual Leave accrued each year?

Step 1: Setup Employee Leave:
How much annual leave does an employee get?
Full-time and part-time employees get 4 weeks annual leave, based on their ordinary hours of work. An example of annual leave for part-time employees: Jane is a part-time employee who works 20 hours per week for a year. During one year, she will accumulate 80 hours of annual leave (the equivalent of 4 weeks work for her).
To illustrate: Bill Farmer is a full-time employee who works 80 hours per fortnight per year (40 hours per week). During one year, he will accumulate 160 hours of annual leave (the equivalent of 4 weeks work for him).
Note: All employees (except for casual employees) get paid 4 weeks of annual leave, base on their ordinary hours of work. Shift workers may get up to 5 weeks of annual leave per year. For more information click on the following link: Annual Leave.
Step 2: To record employees Annual Leave Entitlement for the year:
An employee's annual leave accummulates from the first date of employment (Date Commenced), even if an employee is in a probation period.
For permanent employees who work the same working week every week, on each anniversary of their employment they are entitled to four weeks of paid annual leave.
Each year on this anniversary date an employer must enter this annual leave entitlement for each employee.
