This working days calculator can determine how many working days are between two dates. Use it to calculate the number of working days before your deadlines! We shall briefly discuss working days and how to calculate them, so read further to ensure you're getting your calculations right!

Working days

There are seven days in a calendar week from Monday to Sunday. Working days, work days, or business days are when most companies and national institutions (like banks) are operational. In many parts of the world, work days are from Monday to Friday, leaving the weekend's days (Saturday and Sunday) as non-working days. In other words, there are usually five work days per week.

How many working days between two dates

To calculate the number of working days between two dates, we must follow these steps:

  1. Count the number of days between the two dates.
  2. Subtract the number of weekend days between the two dates.

For example, let's calculate the total number of working days in August 2022.

  1. The total number of days in August is 31.
  2. The number of weekend days between 1st August 2022 and 31st August 2022 is 8.
  3. The number of working days in August 2022 is 31 - 8 = 23.
