Days Worked

The Days Worked figure is calculated based on the number of work days during a period less any public holidays that fall within the period (as defined in the HO parameter).

The figure is also affected:

  • by when you roll your End of Month, so if you roll your end of month of 4/9/19 then the days worked is calculated from this day.  It is suggested you go and update the Maintain Budget Parameter and amend the Start Date.
  • when a user takes any leave as determined by the Activity Code where the GST Exempt/Leave = LEAVE.

Legal Work (Hours/Day)Time entered which is chargeable including non-chargeable productive work entered. This is averaged throughout the month.

Work Units (converted to hours) / Days Worked.
i.e. (34/10) = 3.4 / 10 days = 0.34

Target MTD Days Worked x Chargeable Legal Hours / Actual MTD Days Worked (averaged).
i.e. 21 x 6 / 10 = 12.60

Non-Legal (Hours/DayTime entered which is non-chargeable non-productive work excluding the unavailable time (entered as Leave). This is averaged throughout the month.

N/C Units converted to hours / Days Worked. 
i.e. (40/10) 4.0 / 10 days = 0.40

Target MTD Days Work x Non-Chargeable Hours / Actual MTD Days Worked (averaged).
i.e. 21 x 2 / 10 = 4.20
