# full & flexi furlough JSS closed & open one week

Weekly payroll requiring full and flexi furlough and JSS closed and JSS open spanning Oct / Nov

• ### Dividend tax High rate

How would you deal with this one?  A weekly run payroll, week worked from Monday to Sunday, so last day for current pay period is 1st November.  Some employees on full furlough, some on flexi furlough.  From 1st November some will go onto Job Support Scheme closed, others onto Job Support Scheme open.  None have set days they usually work, or set hours they work on particular days, so all variably paid.  I think for the the furlough and flexi furlough I will multiply the hours worked, usual hours for the week and furlough pay for the week by 6/7.  It's the best I can do

For the JSS however, how would I calculate it given there is no particular pay pattern?  Would you do the same as above, though multiply by 1/7?  So should I divide the average hours usually worked for the week by 1/7? Then depending on whether open or closed JSS claim 67% of one day's equivalent and something similar for the JSS open?  I've got lost even thinking about it and going round in circles again.  Would any of you have any ideas?

Have you looked at HMRC calculations. There is an example of a weekly paid on variable hours. Its all this going back and working out this month last year thats the faff. However if you use that as an example and work thru it slowly manually first and then onto a spreadsheet it isnt too bad. believe me I am a dunderhead at spreadsheets. I always think if I can get to the answer of HMRCs example I am there.
In short there is no quick way but if you get the equation in place now you have a head start for the up and coming months

Thank you. I'll have a wee look at HMRC's examples again. What's throwing me is it's a payroll of about 40 employees with 4 different scenarios going on, all in one week (I've another 17 payrolls the same!!!) but I'll get one of the accountants to see if he has time to design a spreadsheet for me. I'm just a payroll clerk getting a bit long in the tooth and designing my own spreadsheets is beyond me. I go back to the age of the "big yellow sheet" a pencil, rubber and a calculator. I'll give it a go anyway. Thanks all.
