Thanks, The timesheets are entered with the correct week periods and week dates and are not entered as the same weekly period, they are just processed in the same period, so the NI calculation is proved to be correct for the given period calculations.
The pension calculation however is calculated on the amount of pay in that week - this appears to be in line with PR comments around calculations per payment and not calculations per period (which is not referred to at all in PR as far as i can find)

is the refurbishment a complete project or a project of parts - each less than 3500

Thanks everyone,, email address had been changed in the payroll app.
I can see the outgoing submission as xml that does have the email included but still no response to that email
Checked junk mail and firewall and nothing caught there

Thanks everyone for the contributions, and the direction we have at the moment is that the apportionment would be correct for a mid week leave date when considering that the worker could be starting with new employer the following day....so potentially having dual period contribution if apportionment was not in place.
We still have responses awaited from a dev supplier but this sounds logical

Yes, the discrepancy would ordinarily be low - but the contributions in relative terms to the gross is a low percentage.
However, the difference in this instance - the gross value was the same for the final and penultimate periods - was, for the employee, the difference between £29 contribution and £10 contribution.
For the employer the contributions were £18 and £6
(all values rounded up by pence to the pound and not accounting for any tax advantages)
So the potential 'loss' was circa £31 for the period - as Paul rightly says ~£10/day
The query was - is the software working within legislation to say the pension is calculable on the pro-rata basis for the period worked ala SSP?
The hours are entered for the period - the leave date was entered mid-period

Thanks peeps, Token Not Received was the issue but now resolved.

"onerous" as i now realise was innapropriate term for it.
PITA would probably be better

It happens quite a lot even for PAYE workers where we are concerned.

I don't see the difficulty. If a day rate is for 8 hours then it's straightforward.
Reading the example given in the guidance it looks like it may not be just as simple as converting the agreed day hours to the number of days worked - which i figure is what the reason is - i.e. day rate persons will need to declare the number of hours worked each day in order to give evidence for NMW and LW.

would this not be akin to the recent footballer terminations of contract where, in argument, the workers were being paid for 'not working'?
