Hour rate

Hour rate is essential for hour registrations in Zenegy. In order for registration to be created, first rate has to be present in the system. When creating the registration the UID of the registration is required property in the registration.

The rate is used for controlling the following properties:

  • Wage code - Based on the wage code the payroll engine can determine how to calculate the amount. In payroll Denmark hours are calculated as supplements before tax(with or without ATP). In other Zenegy payroll engines the calculation is done based on the wage code settings
  • Name - Name is used for describing the rate and also this text will be shown on the payslip
  • Number - Number is required and it has to be unique in the company. Number is used for easier referencing to the rates.
  • Unit rate - This is the default amount per unit of the rate(property paymentPerRate). If overrideRate is set to true this amount can be set on the registration if not the unit price of the rate will be used
  • Access - By default rate can be applied to all users and all users can register hours on the rate. But in some cases if rate should be limited to specific group or list of users this can be archived with setting the access properties on the rate

In Zenegy you can find two types of hour rates general and standard rates.

  • Standard rate is handled by the system and it is connected to one employee and it is synced with the value of the standard hour on the employee profile. This rates are not show in the rate list in the UI. Rate is standard if property isStandard is true.
  • General rates are all other rates that are not standard and can be managed via the API and the UI. Rate is general if property isStandard is false.


In order for registration to be created you need to provide uid of a rate and uid of a user to which the registration will be registered. In user is the user that is connected to the employee for which the registration is created.
You can pull list of all users via the hour api using the following api
