Calculating "one month"

In the Isle of Man, the term 'month' means a calendar month. 

What is a calendar month?

A calendar month starts on the day after the organisation receives a request to exercise any right, even if that day is a weekend or public holiday. It ends on the corresponding calendar date of the next month.

Examples

Date of Receipt

     

Time calculation starts:

     

Latest date for compliance

     

Explanation

3 September

 

4 September

 

4 October

 

If the end date falls on a weekend, the calendar month ends on the next working day

24 November

 

25 November

 

25 December

 

If the end date falls on a Bank Holiday, the calendar month ends on the next working day

30 March

 

31 March

If the corresponding calendar date does not exist because the following month has fewer days, the calendar month ends on the last day of the month. However, if the  last day of the month (30 April in this example) falls on a weekend or Bank Holiday, the calendar month ends on the next working day
