Here we explain how to add in any opening balances
The employees that you are entering may have worked for you for a while.
Because of that, they might already have some unused leave.
If you need to enter these balances, click on the relevant employee.
Go to Opening Balances.
Enter in the balances as needed for leave types in Leave Balances, this includes long service leave once you have activated this in the settings section. YTD values can be added to Opening Balances by selecting the As At date and entering in the totals.
Please make sure to enter the correct ‘As at’ date for the opening balances to fall under the correct financial year.
If you have access to STP Phase 2 you will have more opening leave balance options
