5. Deductions from earnings paid at regular intervals
If your employee is paid in regular intervals (but not whole weeks or months), then the employees net earnings should be divided by the number of days.
The following table should then be used to work out the appropriate daily rate, which should then be multiplied by the number of days in the period.
|Net earnings||Deduction rate (%)|
|Not exceeding £11||0|
|Exceeding £11 but not exceeding £20||3|
|Exceeding £20 but not exceeding £27||5|
|Exceeding £27 but not exceeding £33||7|
|Exceeding £33 but not exceeding £52||12|
|Exceeding £52 but not exceeding £72||17|
|Exceeding £72||17 in respect of the first £72 and 50 in respect of the remainder|
