How to Use the Holiday Pay Rate Calculator

Holiday Pay Rate Calculator

An increase in holiday salary or holiday pay is not required to be followed by companies unless it is stated in the employment contract. However, employers may announce special increase in salary during holidays especially if it's a non-working day.

The most common holiday pay rate is double pay or 2x your regular salary rate and also the 50% increase or commonly referred to as time and a half pay. While others impose a 30% salary increase during that day.

This Holiday Pay Rate Calculator is used to determine your holiday pay during that day. You can then get the result and add it to your weekly or bi-weekly salary. This calculator only takes into account the regular pay, hours worked on holiday and holiday pay rate or increase.

  1. Step 1

    The left side of the calculator is where you can find the Holiday Pay Rate Calculator inputs. The first thing you can change is whether you are using an hourly or daily period. On the Regular Rate input field, add your standard/regular rate. Then make sure it is with the right unit - is it hourly or daily rate. For example, let's add 25 per hour 🡣.

  2. Step 2

    Changing the unit (hours or days) will change the unit in two input fields (Regular Rate and Holiday Work). After adding the Regular Rate, you can enter the hours worked or days worked on the Holiday Work input. For example, 8 hours 🡣.

  3. Step 3

    The next step is to select the Holiday Rate which includes time + 30% (x1.3), time and a half (x1.5), double pay (x2), triple pay (x3) or quadruple pay (x4). These are the common holiday pay rates.

  4. Step 4

    The last step is to click on the Calculate button to generate the results for you - the actual Holiday Rate and Holiday Pay. You can also click on the Clear button to start again.
