For payments that can be output as 'Other' payments in your census, you can add allowances. You can see more information about allowances here: Allowances and Additional Payments
You cannot report on allowances in the Custom Report Writer. This means that you cannot create a custom report with Allowance information in it.
You also cannot send a mail merge communication (such as a letter) that includes a merge field for allowances, allowance type or pay factor. However, you can include other information such as basic salary following these instructions.
What reporting on allowances is available?
You can see a report of all staff added to an allowance once you select an allowance type from the School > All Staff > HR Admin > Allowances page.
You can also see the total amount for allowances added to each contract from the School > All Staff > HR Admin > Contracts page.
