Holiday Entitlement Calculator
As with all employees, your nanny has a legal minimum holiday entitlement. It is your responsibility as a nanny employer to state the nanny’s holiday allowance in the contract of employment and administer holiday pay where due.
Use the Nannytax holiday calculator below to work out how many days or hours your nanny is entitled to, based on their working week.
- Calculate the statutory holiday entitlement in days, if your employee works, the same number of hours each shift.
- Calculate the statutory holiday entitlement in hours if your employee works different hours each day but set hours per week.
Please note, this calculator should only be used to calculate holiday for employees on a fixed hours contract.
If your employee will be working on a variable hour’s basis, please speak to a member of our team, who will happily calculate this for you.
By law, a full-time employee is entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks (28 days) of paid leave per annum. Employers can choose to offer more than the legal minimum if they wish. Holiday can only be taken as it has been accrued.
Bank Holidays are included within the 28 days entitlement. Therefore, if a nanny were to take a Bank Holiday off, it will be deducted from their holiday entitlement.
Bank Holidays do not have to be taken and the holiday days can be taken at another time, providing an agreement has been reached between the nanny and the employer.
