In yesterday’s budget, the UK Chancellor announced that small employers (including PA employers) will be able to reclaim Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) for absences of up to 14 days as a result of Coronavirus.
SSP rebates should be claimed through payroll.
SPAEN members should be advised that if using SPAEN’s payroll service, we will make automatic application for this on their behalf (so long as they advise for who and when the SSP is applicable). Please note that this refund will appear as a reduction in tax paid, rather than as a cash refund.
If on another payroll system, then you will need to speak with your payroll provider.
