Employee benefit allowances | HR Web Platform

Overview

Employee allowances can range from providing remote employees with a daily spending quota, right through to providing a travel allowance if the employee is regularly on the road for work. There can be many types of allowances offered, so having a register where you can record which of your employees is receiving what allowance will reduce your administrative time spent in this area.

This feature allows you to create a new benefit category, edit the information if it changes, and delete the record if it is no longer relevant. However, it is not used to assign the monetary value of the benefit nor to allocate the benefit to an employee. To assign the monetary value and designate which employee will receive this benefit, refer to the following article.

Warning

Employee benefits do not sync over to the Payroll platform. This means your organisation's payroll admin will need to enter this information manually into the Payroll platform.

  • Hi James, 

    Apologies if this is already documented somewhere - but what is the full list of items that do not sync over to the Payroll platform. We are having a very difficult process of running payroll/HR with Employment Hero and Keypay in our business and we need clarify on where the groups payroll admin will need to enter this information manually into the Payroll platform over what we enter for changes or updates or new items to add in the HR platform.
