## SCHEDULE 2S METHOD FOR CALCULATING MULTIPLIER

*(introduced by section 3(1)(b))*

1SAs respects each date on which, but for this Act, a payment of the casualty would have fallen due, a value shall, subject to paragraphs 2 and 3 below, be calculated, rounded to three decimal places, in accordance with the formula—

where n is the period, in years, between the relevant date and the date of the payment; and the sum of all the values so calculated shall be the multiplier for the purposes of section 3(1)(b) of this Act.

2SFor the purposes of paragraph 1 above, for any case where the period is—

(a)less than½ year (or is nil), the value shall be 1;

(b)½ but less than 1 year, the value shall be 0.953.

3SFor the purposes of reckoning n in paragraph 1 above, where the period is more than one year, n shall be the whole number of years in question (with any time in excess of that number being ignored).
