Allowances allow you to pay additional rates to Staff for shifts such as a first aid qualification (in which a mileage, expense, oncall etc may be implemented) or where you want to pay Staff costs for meals etc.
Allowances can also be allocated based on the type of service being performed (E.g.: a Sleepover shift will have a Sleepover allowance allocated).
Allowances can only be allocated from the shift/program information page. This page can be accessed whilst generating a shift/program or editing a shift/program.
On the shift/program information page select the allowance from the drop-down menu.
