Payroll Concepts > Frequently Asked Questions > Can a custom Average Daily Wage be entered?

Yes.  If the average daily wage is not correct (for instance, if there is not enough payslip history to arrive at an accurate figure), a custom rate may be entered as follows:

  • Go to the employee’s profile and click on Leave > Record Taken
  • At the bottom of the screen, the calculated Average Daily Wage figure is displayed.
  • If this is incorrect, enter a Custom Rate, and click Save.
  • The custom rate will now be used instead of the calculated rate for the current payslip.
