Incomplete Monthly Salary Prorated in China


What's the calculation rule in China for incomplete monthly working?

How would the salary for the monthly if the employee onboard/offboard in the Middle of the Month. 

China Monthly Salary Cycle:By Calendar Month (1st - 28th/30th/31st)

Statutory Payable Days: 261 days per year / 21.75 days per days

Prorata Caculation in China for incomplete month employed:


 = Round(Base Pay/21.75* X,2)

  X= Networking days( including days worked + Bank Holiday/PTO)

e.g. Someone start on 9th May 2023 as date of commencement, with monthly salary agreed at CNY10000,  from 9th May - 31 May, there are 17 networking days,

 - So His/Her May salary will be CNY10000/21.75*17= CNY7,816.09.
