The default reference pay period set out in the guidance is that "of 28 Feburary".
Did the author forget it is a leap year or is there a cunning plan to that date?
For people who are paid on the last day of the calendar month for the work done in that month, do we take that period to be January as the February pay was paid after the cut-off date? thI know that the 29th was a Saturday and that it is therefore likely that most people would have been paid on the 28th, but some might have been paid later. In any event the relevant paydate is likely to be the normal pay day regardless of any temporary adjustment when the pay day falls on a non-banking day, anyway that's how PAYE works. If is correct to take the pay for February do we have to reduce it by 1/29th because one of the days being paid is after the cut-off date?
