Statutory Pay Calculation & Schedule Report


Statutory Pay Calculations


BrightPay uses the full statutory week method when calculating & applying statutory pay calculations.


Weekly Payroll Example:

An employee's statutory leave period begins on a Wednesday. Therefore the last day of their statutory leave week will be a Tuesday.

Their statutory payment (SMP, SAP, SPP, ShPP) will thus first become payable in the weekly pay period in which the first Tuesday of the leave period falls.


Monthly Payroll Example:

An employee's statutory leave period begins on a Wednesday. Therefore the last day of their statutory leave week will be a Tuesday.

Their statutory payment (SMP, SAP, SPP, ShPP) will thus first become payable in the pay period in which the first Tuesday of the leave period falls.

BrightPay will then establish how many Tuesdays fall in the monthly pay period and apply the weekly statutory rate to the number of Tuesdays there are.
