Holidays in Payboy are defaulted to your individual 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 own 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.
