Has anyone find that the current calcultor differs from the prvious ones? In theory i would think they should arrive the same value as they are proptionally calculated, but i find it could arrive different values?
We have employees were fully furloughed but ended in July, some were continously on furlough from Apr and back to work usual hours in the middle of July, a couple of them started in Apr and then worked three days a week instead of their usual five days a week.
I used the online calculator early July, and compared to the current one, the ealier version used days for Jul instead of hours and gave a much higher claim value.
Say an employee who normally works 20 hours five days a week and get paid a regular £1000 a month returned to work on 20th July, on day basis, that would be calulated as 1000 divided by 31 days then times 19 days furloughed then times 80%, which gave £ 490.32 furlough grant. But if based on hours, 88.75 usual hours ( 20 hours divided by 7 times 31 ); 40 hours actual hours worked , 48.75 furloughed hours; it would be calculated as £1000 divided by 88.75 then times 48.75 , then times 80% equals £439.44, so there is a £50.88 difference.
Is there anything wrong with the calculations above?
On the second scenario, the old calculator also gave the calculation for proportion of days instead of the whole July, and allowed calculation of hours for the flexible furlough of a section of July.
Unfortunately i did not print off the old calculation, merely noted down the figures.
Would I be able to claim using the old calculation or do i have to use the current version?
