Allowances can be used to provide the employee with an additional amount if a particular employment condition occurs on the timesheet.  Using this form you can name the allowance and select the relevant options to link this to your payroll system.

Allowances in Tanda are located under Payroll > Shift Allowances:

To create a new allowance, click on the green + Create allowance button in the top right corner:

First, set a Name for the Allowance and link this to your Payroll & Accounting System. 

Next, select what type of allowance it is - Manual or Automatic:

Manual allowances require detail on who it will apply to and the rate to be paid. This will only apply when you add it to the timesheet. A common example is the travel allowance where the distance travelled (i.e. kilometers) is manually entered on the timesheet.

Automatic allowances apply whenever the conditions specified on the form are met, including factors such as the day, time and type of shift. For example, an employee can receive the laundry allowance for every shift they work. 

Finally, set whether you want all staff to be eligible for the allowance or whether it is just say Full Time staff and then how it is paid - specific cost or a multiplier:

Both manual and automatic allowances require a rate to be specified, which can either be a specific cost (e.g. dollar amount) or multiplier (calculated with the employee's base hourly rate).

Once you have filled everything in, click Create Allowance. For assistance on how to add it the timesheet, have a read of the following article
