Use the Nannytax holiday entitlement calculator below to work out how many days or hours a nanny is entitled to, based on their working week.

Holiday Entitlement Calculator

Full-time employee

By law, a full-time employee is entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks (28 days) of paid leave per annum. This includes the 8 UK bank holidays. Employers can choose to offer more than the legal minimum if they wish.  Holiday can only be taken as it has been accrued.

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.

Bank Holidays

Bank Holidays are included in the 28 days entitlement. Therefore, if a nanny were to take a Bank Holiday off, it will be deducted from their holiday entitlement. If a part-time nanny does not normally work on a day which a Bank Holiday would fall, then the Bank Holiday does not affect their entitlement.

Bank Holidays do not have to be taken and the days holiday can be taken at another time, providing an agreement has been reached between the nanny and the employer.
