With the Department for Business and Trade (DBT) responses to the holiday pay and entitlement for part-year and irregular hours workers now released the news is coming thick and fast.

Shortly after the release of the consultation documents, the draft regulations have also been released.

The regulations state a start date of 1 January 2024, However the holiday pay specific regulations will affect leave years starting on or after 1 April 2024. Of course, this is now with the government to agree the regulations and could be subject to change.

The regulations confirm these changes will apply to England, Scotland and Wales. 

This gives payroll professionals some additional time to prepare and, hopefully, receive some comprehensive guidance on what will and won’t be allowed.
