You may add absence (e.g. maternity, paternity, sick leave) items to the Expenditure Statement by clicking on 'Add New' and then selecting the name of the staff member from the drop-down list of possible staff. (Note that if the member of staff you require is not listed under the Staff section they will also not be listed here. You will therefore first need to add their detail under the Staff section before recording their absence). Choose the type of absence from the drop down list, and enter the start and end dates of the absence period, along with the cost.

The option 'Directly Incurred Absence' appears on an Expenditure Statement document menu when the details of staff (Directly Incurred) are added.

There may not be an option 'Directly Incurred Absence' please provide attachment 'other' stating type of absence, dates and costs.
