Can I add overtime and holiday pay to the payslip?

There is an overtime box on the gross pay details page, if you just want to show a simple figure.

In other cases, click the 'Add' option on the right of the Gross Pay Details page and choose a special pay type.

  • The 'Hourly or unit pay' option is suitable for overtime.
  • For holiday which is included in the normal pay cycle, either use 'Extra Pay' or 'Hourly or unit pay'.
  • If a weekly-paid employee gets their holiday pay before they take their leave, use the 'Holiday pay in advance' option. This will work out the tax and NI using HMRC's special rules for this situation.

If you want the overtime rate to appear automatically on each new pay run, you can enter it on the employee's Payslip Items tab.
