As far as possible let the employees finish all available each year. As for carrying forward you may get guidance in Section 60e(2) of the Employment Act:

"(2) The employer shall grant and the employee shall take such leave not later than twelve months after the end of every twelve months continuous service and any employee who fails to take such leave at the end of such period shall thereupon cease to be entitled thereto: "
