For example, Sally works at a childcare centre. She might need to work more than 8 hours most days as she has to wait for the all of the children to be picked up. Sally is a full time employee covered by an award, if she works more than 8 hours every day she will end up working more hours a week or month than is allowed under her award.

First we'll create an award that applies when staff are earning TOIL - that is, when they are working longer than expected. Go to your [Modern Awards](../../awards/) and create a new award named "Non Paid Hours" (note: the name of the award is not important, we've chosen this name as it matches the MYOB instructions we'll see later).

### Method #3 - Hour-based Overtime
With this method, TOIL is awarded when staff work more than a specified number of hours in a pay period. To do this, enter the number of hours in the Overtime field. For example, 38 hours for weekly timesheets or 76 hours for fortnightly ones.
-We're all done with this award! The next step is to create an award that staff can use to claim TOIL. We're going to use the PayAus leave module to do this. The first step is to create a new leave type. Go to your [Modern Awards](../../awards/) and create a new award named "Time in Lieu" (again, the name isn't important). The only other bit of configuration you need to do is to tick the box at the bottom indicating the award applies to Paid Leave.

MYOB have an extensive guide to this process at [http://myobaustralia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11212](http://myobaustralia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11212). We'll summarise it here, but click the link for more information.

3. Create a Payroll Entitlement called TOIL, equal to 100% of the Non Paid Hours wage category. Link this to the Time in Lieu wage category.
So in a nutshell, we've created two wage categories, and an entitlement that will balance them against each other, so that staff can claim TOIL from a balance that accumulates as their unpaid hours accumulate.

You don’t need to do anything further to log TOIL, just have your staff clock in and out, and [export your timesheets](../../payroll/exports) to MYOB as usual. To claim TOIL, either you or your staff should record leave using the Time in Lieu category - then export this to MYOB and it’ll do the rest.
## Other Accounting Systems
-Don't use MYOB? Not all accounting systems have the entitlements functionality that MYOB uses to achieve TOIL. Contact the support department for your accounting system and ask them how they recommend processing it. Or, [contact us](https://www.payaus.com/about) - we'll be happy to help point you in the right direction.
