    Hi @Beverly Flint​ 

    Fourth received the calculation data at the same time as Employers. We will be looking at the best way in which to provide the data according to the new guidelines and will be updating communities early next week.


    Kind Regards

    Hi Beverly

    the guidelines also states the below passage. I don’t think there is any reason to disregard the calculation provided by Fourth which is for period to 29/2/2020.


    “Choose the calculation you think best fits the way your employee is paid. For example, if you pay your employee a regular salary, use the calculation for fixed pay amounts. HMRC will not decline or seek repayment of any grant based solely on the particular choice of pay calculation, as long as a reasonable choice of approach is made.”


    I did find out an issue with Fourth’s auto calculated method though. If a customer pay date is between the 1st and 5th day of the next month (March 5th for Feb wages), the calculation is incorrect. This is because the number of days it uses do not correspond to the total pay received by the employee for that period (as it is cut to 29/2).
