8. Deductions from earnings paid regularly and irregularly
If, on the same pay day, your employee will be paid regular period earnings and irregular period earnings then these amounts should be added together and treated as earnings payable at the regular interval, the appropriate table being used:
An employee receives £250 as normal net weekly pay. In addition £350 is received every 15 days for a different task.
The deductions to be made would be for weekly earnings (Table A) of £250 = £350 = £600.
The deduction rate for £600 is 17 per cent of the first £370 plus 50 per cent of the remainder (£62.90 = £115 = £177.90).
