Reply To: Overpayments created by NTC awards


Although the way the guidance words it can be quite tricky at times, my thoughts on this are that arrears are calc’ed by:

* working out a daily rate by dividing the award by number of days it represents
* counting the days from the award start to the day before the date on the award letter
* using the daily rate X days to produce an arrears figure

The payment cycles (weekly/ 4weekly/ 2weekly) have no effect on this method of working out the arrears.
