Holidays in Payboy are defaulted to your country so for instance, a Vietnamese company will automatically follow Vietnamese calendar holidays.

However, the system is also flexible enough to allow companies to add their unique holidays, or remove certain holidays if need be.

A proper set-up of this will ensure an accurate and fuss-free calculation of payrolls at the end of the month.

Creating a new Holiday Group

  • From the left-side menu, head to Company > Holidays

  • At the top-right corner, click + New Holiday Group

  • Type in the Name of the holiday group

  • Click Submit to create the new group

  • Once the group is created, you can begin to set up the holidays applicable to the group. You can choose the option to Import Holidays or Add New Holidays. 

  • This functionality will be further explained in the sections below
