Holiday Calculation Tool

Welcome to the HR and You Ltd Holiday Entitlement Calculator. This tool is designed to estimate how many holidays an Employee is entitled to, either in a single year, or between two dates.

According to the Working Time Directive, all employees are entitled to 5.6 weeks of holiday per year – three weeks of regular holiday, and a further 1.6 weeks to cover bank holidays. This calculator is designed to tell you how many bank holidays fall within that span of time, if your policies state Employees must use annual leave on bank holidays.

Our calculator pulls data from the government’s own website regarding bank holidays, to ensure accuracy. For this reason, we cannot calculate for years where the government has not yet released the official bank holiday list.

If you need any help interpreting or using this calculator, please feel free to get in contact with us.
