Creating an entitlement

On the Entitlements screen (MPPP3300), you can maintain details and calculations for entitlements. An entitlement can be leave, or any other type of entitlement you might owe to an employee.

Understanding entitlement options

When creating an entitlement, you'll have some options that are worth understanding in detail. These options appear in the different tabs on the Entitlements screen.

Rules tab

Definition section

The Trigger Date dropdown lets you select when an entitlement starts to accrue. You can choose between Employee Start Date, Start of Calendar Year, Employee's Date of Birth or Custom.

If you select Custom for the Trigger Date dropdown, you can enter a date in the second Trigger Date field.

Changes section

You can select the Lump Sum checkbox if you want an entitlement to accrue only at the end of a period.

Properties section

  • When creating a leave entitlement, you need to select the Leave checkbox. This allows leave transactions to be included in the Entitlement History report, and lets you update the Entitlement Adjustments screen—if you need to.


  • When creating a non-accruing entitlement, you need to select the Non Accruing Entitlement checkbox. This disables the options Entitlement may be paid/taken in advance and Cap accrual per period. It also disables the options in the Payslip section.

Accrued from tab

On the Accrued from tab, you can add pay items that track an entitlement's accrual. To add a pay item, click the plus icon :ADV_Plus: in the Accrual base items section.

Membership tab

After you add an entitlement to an employee's standard pay, the employee is added to the list on the Membership tab.

To see which employees have a certain entitlement, select the entitlement in the Entitlement ID field.


Valuation tab

On the Valuation tab, you can choose how you want an entitlement's units are valued. For the Valuation Method, you can select either Standard hourly rate, Specific pay rate or Custom.

For example, in Australia, leave accruals are usually valued at the current standard rate of the employee.

If you set the Provisioning Method to Actuals, you can also select the Auto adjust provisioned entitlement amount checkbox.

If you select the checkbox, MYOB Advanced People automatically recognises a change in rate value, and re-values the entire provisioned amount when a current pay run is completed.

What's next?

After you've created an entitlement, you need to create a pay item for it. That way, that the entitlement accruals and payments can be recorded.

For example, the image below shows a pay item with an ENTITLEMENT PAYMENT in the Type field, and a compassionate leave entitlement in the Attributes section.
