When transitioning from another payroll provider to Employment Hero's payroll platform, you may have employees that have existing Year to Date (YTD) leave balances. It is important to transfer these entitlements over to make sure your employees have the correct leave accrues.
The Opening Balances Leave Balances feature allows you to select an employee file and enter their accrued YTD leave balances. You can also use this feature to clear the opening balances if you entered the wrong YTD figures into their employee file.
You will need to have your leave categories setup before you can use this feature. To read further information on how to set up leave categories, refer to the following article.
