I'm not sure how many days you will need to add, but pretty sure you'll add on all the accrued holiday you earn during mat leave. eg if you get 25 days a year, this will be added to your mat leave, along with the 15 days you are carrying over. So you could end up taking off something like 13.5 months which would be fab.
have you asked your HR dept?

The best way I can explain it is using my own allowance and dates to explain.
Id be taking maternity leave 16th April 2018, and returning on the 40th week so I’ll be due to return to work ‘officially on the books 14th January 2019‘. Each year we get 25days holiday and 8 bank holidays. But as the Mat leave date is after Easter bank holidays I would have taken 3 bank holidays already and only accrue 5 bank holidays in 2018 and 1 bank holiday for New Year Day 2019 (total of 6 bank holidays between 16th April 18 - 14th Jan 19). You add this onto your holiday allowance for the Mat leave year (2018) (less any holiday youve taken before Mat leave) in my case as I will be taking a week holiday before Mat leave so this will leave me with 20 days accrued + 6 bank holiday = 26 days to tag onto the end of my official return to work date. So basically being paid for 26 days without actually being at work.
My 2019 holiday allowance would be untouched so I get 25 days to use up for the rest of 2019.
hope that helps.
