Establish the relevant period, see SPM10625.
- To give a whole number of calendar months in the relevant period count the number of odd days and round then round these up or down as follows:
- any month except February: round 15 days or less down, 16 days or more round up
- February: round 14 days or less down, 15 days or more round up
- add together the gross earnings in the relevant period.
