It depends upon your contract.

Some occupations have a 6-day week, and some a 5-day, so a 5 week holiday will either take 30 or 25 holiday days...

If you normally have a 5 day work week you need 25 days for a 5 week vacation. The absolute minimum in Germany is 4 weeks which is 20 days if you work a 5 day week. Many employers give 30 days. Statutory holidays are on top of that so say you take one week off where Monday is a stat holiday then you only use 4 of your vacation days.

 

If you have a 6 day week the calculations are a bit different.

Then there are the special cases of Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.

Check your contract to see if these are (half) day holidays.

 

My firm gave us a few weeks notice (Nov) to say if we'd get them given to us or need to book a holiday day.

Changed each year according to health of the firm.

 

Booked holiday would be returned to us as appropriate.

thank you so much.

so i calculated 165

now let's say i have some up coming business trips abroad. 10 days in france + 8 days in greece.

 

do i have to deduct the 18 days of work abroad ? this is all for the sake of calculation of commuting costs.

so i multiply the 165*0,3 or (165-18)*0,3 ? 

i hope that makes sense

I used to have business trips abroad.

My company pays me travel allowance and also expenses.

There is a space for this allowance on the payslip - also on the notice of taxes paid last year.

 

One year I forgot to deduct the business trip days from my commuting allowance.

The tax office asked me (in a friendly tone) if I'd want to correct it.

I did of course :)

 

Yes, you'll need to deduct your 18 from the 165.

 

Unless you drive to work and then on to your business destination

in which case for that (and the returning day ) the commuting allowance stands.

 

PS

sites like this help calculate working days / year based on each Bundesland:
