# Flexi-furlough employee leaving mid-month

Calculating usual pay

• ### Buying block of fees worth £10K

Quick query - monthly paid employee is leaving today (21/9/20). To calculate usual hours & pay, do I just look at what they worked and were paid for 1st to 21st Sept 2019, and compare it to the average hours/pay method for 21 days, taking the higher of the two?

Would they normally be a fixed (salaried) employee, or normally variable hours?

If fixed (eg 40 hours per week) I would work out usual hours:

40 / 7 x 21 = 120.

Fortunately I have not got any variable hours folk.

It's a variable pay employee.

It is hours to hours
Actual pay irrelevant

But isn't the amount they were paid in 2019/20 relevant for working out what to claim 70% of?

For a variable rate employee?

For a variable pay employee? I'd understood you look at earnings for the same period in 2019 versus average for 2019/20?

This is just the kind of thing HMRC haven’t a clue as to the time and effort it takes. If it was me I would work out the pro rata hours for now. And pro rata for September 2019 & pay the higher. No idea if it’s right but it’s justifiable. I bet if HMRC came and sat with you they wouldn’t have a clue what you were talking About let alone how to sort.
