Implement the Dutch legislation of 2012

Per January 1st 2012, the legislation concerning leave days has been changed, causing the statutory part of your leave to expire 6 months after the end of the fiscal year, rather than 5 years, as it was before. So if your company’s fiscal year starts on January 1st 2015, the statutory part of your balance will expire on July 1st 2016.

  2. Here you find the possibility to select the calculation method “Dutch legislation 2012”.
  3. Click on Save.
  4. When there are more types of leave that need this division between statutory and exceeding statutory leave, you just have to repeat the above mentioned steps.

At the end of the fiscal year, all the leftover balance will be transported to the next your automatically after having processed the fiscal year.
