Example

An employee's net pay

  • (a) £90 (from 1 April to 9 April - nine days)
  • (b) £120 (from 10 April to 19 April - 10 days)
  • (c) £176 (from 20 April to 30 April - 11 days)

The deductions to be made would be:

(a) 90/9 = £10

  • Daily deduction = £10 x 3 per cent (30p)
  • Deduction to be made for period = 9 x 0.30 = 2.70

(b) 120/10 = £12

  • Daily deduction = £12 x 3 per cent (36p)
  • Deduction to be made for period = 10 x 0.36 = £3.60

(c) 176/11 = £16

  • Daily deduction = £16 x 5 per cent (80p)
  • Deduction to be made for period = 11 x 0.80 = £8.80
