How do I create a First Aid Allowance?

A First Aid Allowance can be setup to be paid automatically to an employee every payrun using an Extra Earnings Rule.

In this example, we are setting up a First Aid Allowance that is paid to an employee who is part of the First Aid Allow group. When the employee is assigned to the group, their payslip will automatically have $12.94 added.

Navigate to Menu > Settings > Payroll rules > Extra Rules, click the Create New Rule button to configure the allowance.

Key values to configure:

  • Title: This will be the Payslip title of the allowance. For example "First Aid Allowance".
  • Type: Select "Fixed".
  • Employee/Group: Select who is eligible for this allowance. For example, the group "First Aid Allow".
  • Value: Enter the amount to be paid. For example "12.94".
  • Classification: Select "Allowance".
  • STP Category: Select "Certs".
