CJRS & BrightPay - Partial Pay Periods falling within a Claim Period


For a pay period covered by multiple claim periods, we apportion the pay period's gross pay into each claim period on a daily basis, where each day has a relative weighting in line with the maximum daily wage amounts as stipulated by HMRC. This is the only method that guarantees accuracy in all scenarios.

Note to the above

The above calculations have been performed manually to explain BrightPay's methodology. 

In some instances, users may see a few pence difference when comparing a manual calculation with the amount displayed in the Claim Report in BrightPay. 

This is because BrightPay uses a more direct and accurate algorithmic version of the calculation instead (similar to those used in NIC calculations) which can result in the few pence difference.
