I have a staff memeber who gets paid variable amounts on a weekly basis, who started part way through the 19/20 tax year. The employee gets paid a week in arrears. Will this affect the furlough amount I can claim? Should I claim for the first day they got paid or the day they started. ie so she has only been with us 2 months so in the calculator I calculate the amount she got paid up to the date she was furloughed, but as pay is in arrears should I take that week into account when calculating her earnings or take it from the first pay day. It does affect the amount I can claim.
Thanks in advance
