If you have a Managed Award template enabled in Tanda, the template will have allowances pre-built into Tanda. Common examples of pre-built allowances includes first aid allowance and the uniform and laundry allowance.

Enable the allowance on the employee's profile in Tanda 

You will be able to find the list of allowances under Workforce > Staff > select employee > Payroll tab:  

Select the relevant allowance from the drop down and press Update Employee Details to save this change. 

Check how the allowance is applying on the staff member's timesheet 

In either Daily or Weekly (or Fortnightly) Timesheets, you can check the allowance is applying to the employees' shift by looking at the Allowances below the shift times:

Additionally, this will appear on the Timesheet Export Summary:

If Tanda does not have your specific allowance pre-built, you can create your own allowance using our Allowances form.
