Leave Provision calculation – AU Payroll


Leave Provision Calculation is difficult to understand and not straight forward calculation.

The calculation of leave provision is performed in payroll via function QLPVR.

This document illustrates the manual calculation behind this function

This document is useful for functional consultants while analysing issues with Leave Provision calculations.


In the example below the service of the employee is 6 years

Period July 2014

The LSLPR table in the current payroll results table shows the LSL accrual hours, rate, Probability factors, Escalation rate, Inflation rate and the Bond Rate.

The rates can also be fetched from the table V_T5QLK


Probability Factor

This factor depends on the organization, the organization applies a value based on the probability that an employee will be entitled to long service leave

For the above example employee the Probability factor is 50%


Column 4 is the leave value (Leave Accrual * Rate)

Column 5: The Probability factor depends on the Organization, organization applies a rate base on the service of the employee. For the example employee here it is 50% for 6 years of service.

Column 6: The nominal rate is the product of the leave value and the probability factor

Column 7: The escalation rate is also fetched from the  table V_T5QLK based on the years of service.

Column 8: Escalated Sub total is the sum of nominal amount and the escalation amount.


Column 9: Inflation Rate fetched from the table V_T5QLK based on the years of service

Column 10: The sum of escalation amount and the inflation amount – Refer Annexure 1 & 2 for calculation



Column 11: The rate is fetched from the table V_T5QLK for the net present value
