Paying employees for Public Holidays over the Christmas and New Year period

Boxing Day this year falls on Saturday 26th Dec, and the Day after New Years on Saturday 2nd January, for most of us these holidays will be recognised on the Monday following, but for some it will still be recognised on the Saturday so I thought I would clarify how these public holidays are to be paid.

Please see the easy to follow flow chart below.














“We have used Strategic Software for many years for our Accounting Program as well as our Payroll and have found them to be extremely efficient and reliable. They have a vast knowledge of Accounting Systems and Payroll, nothing was ever a problem. Payroll was a very easy and painless task, Strategic Software took care of every aspect and the reports we received weekly were very detailed with all the information we needed. We have since changed our programs to match our Head Office, however . . . during the change over Strategic Software couldn’t have been more helpful. Their understanding of what was needed was paramount for a smooth transition.”
