Frequently asked questions:- Calculating daily and weekly salaries

When the amounts are rounded off the closest cents, there is no difference between the following formulae:-

Using no. of months ÷ no. of weeks

R1000.00

(Salary)

x

12

(Months)

÷

52

(Weeks)

=

R230.77 (R230.7692)

Using no. of days worked in a 5-day work week

R 1,000.00

(Salary)

÷

21.66667

(No. of days worked per month)

x

5

(Working week)

=

R230.77  (R230.7692)

Using no. of days worked in a 6-day work week

R 1,000.00

(Salary)

÷

26

(No. of days worked per month)

x

6

(Working week)

=

R230.77  (R230.7692)

Using average no. of weeks in a month*

R 1,000.00

(Salary)

÷

4.3333

(Average weeks per month)

=

R230.77  (R230.771)

* This formula is used in various sectoral determinations (e.g. Wholesale and Retail) and seems to be the approach recommended by Department of Labour. In reality, when the amounts are rounded off to the closest cents, the calculations are the same.
