Some businesses prefer to pay providers in their home location even if they work in multiple locations – pay is allocated to each location based on hourly rate and service commissions. At the same time, such businesses need details around pay allocation by location so that each location can report expenses appropriately.

Note : Reach out to Zenoti Support if you want this feature enabled for your business. This feature applies only to businesses that use the FLSA model to calculate overtime.

After the feature is enabled, business owners and administrators can see an additional column, Payroll Allocation, in the organization-level payroll report.

For allocation, Zenoti uses the number of hours worked in each center if the pay is based on hourly pay and uses service earning if the pay-out type is based on commission.

Refer to the following table for a few examples.

Payout Type

How pay is allocated

Hourly pay at base rate (No Overtime)

Split total pay in the ratio of the number of hours worked at each center.

For example, if total pay is $400 (40 hours at $10 per hour) and if the employee worked in center 1 for 30 hrs and in center 2 for 10 hrs, cost allocation between center 1 and center 2 will be (400*30/40) and (400*10/40).

Commission (No Overtime)

Split total pay in the ratio of number of service earnings at each center.

For example, if total pay is $405 ($900 in service sales at 45%) and if the employee earned $500 in service sales in center 1 and $400 in service sales in center 2, cost allocation between center 1 and center 2 will be (405*500/900) and (405*400/900).

Hourly pay at commission rate (with overtime)

Split total pay in the ratio of number of hours worked at each center.

Hourly pay at base rate (With Overtime )

Split total pay in the ratio of number of hours worked at each center.

Commission (With Overtime)

Split total pay in the ratio of number of service earnings at each center.

OT Eligible - Sum of hourly pay and commission (with OT pay, without pay)

Payout = $400 + $405 = $805

Center 1, 30 hrs, $500: Cost allocation = (30/40)*(400) + (500/900) * (405) = 525

Center 2, 10hrs, $400 : Cost allocation = (10/40)*(400) + (400/900) * (405) = 280

OT Not Eligible - Sum of hourly pay and commission

Payout = $400 + $405 = $805

Center 1, 30 hrs, $500: Cost allocation = (30/40)*(400) + (500/900) * (405) = 525

Center 2, 10hrs, $400 : Cost allocation = (10/40)*(400) + (400/900) * (405) = 280
