Hi everyone, Come on over to the new discussions in Xero Central. It’s a more intuitive way to connect and chat all things business with one another. Ask questions, dish out answers, and get involved.

You can still view topics in the Xero Business Community to see all the useful knowledge that’s been shared there; and you can restart conversations you feel have been of huge value to you on Xero Central.

If you have brilliant ideas for innovations, you can keep on adding feature requests in the Xero Business Community, and voting on existing requests. There’s more in store, as we come up with the best way to take on your thoughts and share developments

NZ Payroll: Work Pattern

Started by Becky Wickham in Payroll Feature Requests | Idea

Please add the ability to be able to set a work pattern rather than applying an average across a week.

I.e. Some work patterns might be set at 8 hours Mon-Thur and only 7 hours on a Friday, a total of 44 hours per week, which ends up splitting out as an average of 8.8 hours worked per day, which is not a true reflection of the hours worked on Fridays.

Christmas Day is a Friday. These employees should only receive Public Holiday not worked hours of 8 NOT 8.8.
Thanks for engaging in the Community here, Becky 👋 Totally understand why entering a work pattern would be useful to you and you're right, this isn't a feature currently offered in Xero Payroll. Make sure you come back and vote for your request as this helps with prioritising work.

In regards to public holidays, if you're employee/s are set up on a holiday group, public holidays will automatically be included in the payslip as a separate line - check out this article here for more info.😊
