How to manually calculate unpaid leave for payroll?

To manually calculate unpaid leave, you should ensure that Record Unpaid Leave in Payroll is not ticked under Settings > Payment Settings.

To calculate the daily rate you can divide the monthly salary by either of:

  • Fixed Number of Days

  • Working days in Current Calendar Month (including public holidays)

  • All Days in Current Calendar Month


Example for Working days in Current Calendar Month:

Jim earns RM4,000 a month and takes 3 days' unpaid leave in March 2021. How much should be deducted?

  • There are 23 working days in March 2021.

  • As Jim took 3 days off, the total deduction should be RM521.74 (4,000/23*3).
