If you wish to use the calculator as a professional or organisation as part of your work, you should set up a multiple-use account.
It might not always be as obvious as where you live when it comes to deciding which rules apply. See our detailed guidance on the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act for more information.
In a small number of cases, the changes made in March 2014 lengthened the rehabilitation period, particularly where individuals received multiple summary offences, and where individuals have received Detention and Training Orders.
In this situation, you should use the old version of the Calculator to work out any convictions that were dealt with before 10th March 2014. Anything that is spent before that point can be discounted. Anything that carries forward should be entered into the Calculator again, but this time using the new rules, to work out when they would become spent.
