To help you record staff payments, and for the Workforce census, you can record Allowances and Additional Payments.
- For Additional Payments for staff members, you'll need to record these as Additional Payments in the Contracts section of the staff member's profile, with the right Additional payment reason.
- For payments that can be output as 'Other' payments in your census, you can add allowances. Check all allowances used by your school are recorded on the Allowances page and click each allowance to check it has been added to all the right staff member’s contracts.
You can record Additional Payments for staff members such as Teaching and Learning Responsibility payments (TLRs).
You'll need to record these in the Contracts section of the staff member's profile, with the right Additional payment reason. There isn't a central area to view these like for Allowances.
Adding an Additional Payment
Click +Add in the Additional Payments section of the staff member's profile.
Fill in the details of the payment, including the Additional payment reason, then click Save Changes.
Important notice: As Additional Payments cannot be recorded as pro-rata in Arbor, for payments that happen over the course of a year such as TLRs, we recommend recording one for each month.
For payments that can be output as 'Other' payments in your census, you can add allowances. The School > All Staff > HR Admin > Allowances page shows the allowances that are currently being used at your school.
Adding an allowance
Click '+Add' and add code and name on the slide over.
Amending allowance details
Click on the allowance. The allowance overview will then load. To amend either name or code click on them and update accordingly.
To add the amount to be paid click '+Add' in FTE Amounts (Annual) and update the slide over with the amount and dates.
Adding allowances to staff
You can add new allowances to a staff member's contract by clicking +Add in the Staff Contract section of their Staff Profile.
The allowances will be listed in the Staff Contract section of their Staff Profile.
Once an allowance has been added to a staff member, you'll need to remove it from staff to be able to remove it from the School > All Staff > HR Admin > Allowances page.
