You can calculate an hourly rate or daily rate at which to assign to holiday pay. This rate is based on the average rate of pay accumulated over several historical periods.
When calculating the average rate of pay, Cintra iQ considers:
  1. The number of historical periods required. Twelve weeks is the default period on which to base your calculation, but it can be changed. When an individual has not been employed for the full period set, the calculation takes into account the number of existing periods of pay associated to the individual. 
  2. Relevant pay for each historical period. For more information, see How Do I Determine Relevant Pay?
  3. Number of contractual hours/days within each historical period. For more information, see How Do I Set Contractual Hours/Days?
To obtain the employee's holiday rate based on the average pay, Cintra iQ divides the total relevant pay, by the total number of contractual hours for the number of weeks/periods as set up in the payroll.

 Non-Working Days

Closed payroll periods: The average holiday rate calculated only takes into account closed payroll periods. Now that you have set up the holiday rate requirements, you are now ready to Input Holiday Hours/Days.
