The Absences report shows you any employee time off that you've recorded as an absence. The report can be run for any of your employees and can show data for any time period since you started using Sage Business Cloud Payroll.
Absences for the current and previous tax years, appear as part of your pay run. Therefore, this report is particularly useful if you want to see absences before the previous tax year or for employees that are no longer part of your active pay runs. Or if you want to save a record of absences by themselves.
In December we released the Salary Journal report.
You can use salary information from a pay run to create a Salary Journal report. If you use an accounting product, you can import the report as a journal transaction. This can save you time and reduce processing errors.
