Find difference between two dates

I need to know the difference between two dates as a number to use that to add to another date extending it’s duration. 

 

Use case is as such: 

  1. Customer has membership ending date XX/XX/2021
  2. They purchase another year of membership
  3. We need to know the difference between today's date and their end date
  4. Then add that to the 365 days they’ve bought to give us their new expiration date

 

I’ve stared at the formatter for a while but you can only use it with written expressions (i.e. +50days) to change a date rather than mathematical operation using two dates. Conversely the numbers utility won’t work with a date format. 

I’ve had some kinda ideas but they all get very task heavy quickly so would be incredibly grateful if anyone has a solution to this! 

Cheers!
