    Different companies have slightly different ways of working it out. Its normally in the staff handbook (if there is one).

    " annual leave starting 1 Aug ending 30 Sep" I think you may have made a little error here. Do you mean 1 October to 30 September?

    the other possibility is that the OP started on 1st August 2017 and the employer worked out their leave entitlement over 13 months to tie in with a leave year ending on 30 September. That would be a little under what I'd expect for statutory entitlement (28 days including bank holidays / 12 * 14)

    So, a little clarification from the OP before we can answer, although the answer is likely to be no. of days' leave in a full year divided by 12 multiplied by actual months worked. how part months are calculated will vary, and note they can give you the exact amount, or round up, but cannot round down.

    Just over 3/4 of the entitlement, about 25 days but that is only an estimate up to 10th May, is that your actual finish date or do you have a notice period after that date
    Be Alert..........Britain needs lerts.

    I hope I've not misunderstood you. Just divide the A/L by the number of weeks. Then the number of weeks you are working before leaving should give you the amount

    Also, check whether you continue to accrue holiday allowance during your notice period - I believe some companies take the view that you don't. You may well find that they will insist on you using your holiday allowance before leaving...

    If you want to leave earlier than your contractual notice period, raise it with your employer directly - don't just walk out as you never know who in the company may have contacts in any other companies you could apply to in future - people do talk!
