When is the best time to go on vacation

July is more profitable than May or January

So, what rules should be followed when choosing a vacation time from a financial point of view?

Rule one: in months in which there are many non-working holidays, the amount of vacation pay will be less. On the contrary, if there are many working days in a month, then more money will be credited.

The thing is that if there are many holidays in a month, then the so-called cost of a working day increases. According to the Labor Code, non-working holidays are not included in the number of calendar days of vacation and are not paid, but they increase the duration of rest.

From this point of view, taking a vacation in January or May is unprofitable - there are too many holidays and too few working days. But in the summer months (in July and August), there are noticeably more working days, which means that it’s not only pleasant to relax, but also useful for your personal budget. So the best friend when planning a vacation is a production calendar: it will tell you exactly when and how much we work.

Time or money?

Rule two: it is unprofitable to divide the vacation into parts. Everyone knows that the vacation of an ordinary Russian worker is 28 calendar days. According to the Labor Code, one of its parts must be at least 14 calendar days. As for the remaining 14, the law does not regulate how it is possible and how it is impossible to split them. Those who like to relax longer know how to organize it: having issued (with the consent of the employer) a vacation from Monday to Friday (for 5 working days), the employee actually rests all week and thereby “saves” himself 2 days of vacation. By repeating this one more time (again, if the company doesn't mind), the employee again saves 2 days of rest - thus, he can rest almost a week more!

However, this trick has a downside - financial. Not everyone knows that weekends adjacent to vacations are not paid. If you take vacation from Monday to Sunday, then you will receive vacation pay for the weekend too. The difference can be significant.

Once again about the benefits of the bonus

However, the amount of vacation pay depends on another very significant factor - the employee's income. Rule three: vacation pay will be higher if in the billing period the employee received not only a salary, but also incentive payments (bonuses). A sick leave for an employee, of course, reduces his income, and hence vacation pay.

Any accountant will explain to you that according to the law, all vacation days are paid in the amount of average earnings. It is calculated as follows: the salary accrued for 12 months (this includes salary and bonus) is divided by 12, the result is divided by another 29.3 (this is the average monthly number of calendar days). We get the average earnings for 1 day. Now we multiply it by the number of vacation days (calendar, of course) and - voila! - before us the amount of vacation pay.

Just do not forget that when calculating average earnings, only working days are taken into account, and if during the last 12 months you went on vacation or were on sick leave, then all the so-called vacation and hospital money will not be included in the calculation of the average salary for 12 months. And the result in this case will be divided in the accounting department not by 29.3 days, but by the average number of days that will remain without sick leave and vacation.

In other words, if during the vacation period you received only a salary (without incentive payments), then the average earnings will be less. From these positions, going on vacation on the eve of the expected payment of the bonus is clearly unprofitable: it’s better to wait and please your wallet with a larger amount of vacation pay.

And if the award is not expected, think about it: are you resting too much? :)
