Welcome to the free pro rata holiday calculator

This is a free resource to calculate the holiday entitlement for employees who works a standard contract contract. The calculation will not appear on the screen, but will be e-mailed if you subscribe to our mailing list with a valid e-mail address.

To ensure an accurate calculation, you should include statutory holidays in your contractual holiday entitlement.  The practice of saying X days holidays + Statutory holidays, e.g.  20 days + statutory can be inconsistent and potentially unlawful, so to ensure the consistent and lawful treatment of those who only work part of the holiday year,  the annual leave entitlement should be the total amount inclusive of statutory holidays, using the example above the figure for the calculator should be 28 days NOT 20.

If a particular leave year has more than 8 days statutory holidays, you need only add an additional day’s leave entitlement if it is a contractual term. To see a list of bank holidays days and dates, click on the link below:
