The government has announced that from mid-January 2022 the SSP Rebate Scheme will be reintroduced. The rebate scheme allows employers to claim back up to 2 weeks SSP when the employee is off due to coronavirus. The scheme originally closed on the 30th September 2021, though you do have until 31st Dec 2021 to submit any claims.
We are waiting for further information to be released but we presume the scheme will work in the same way as it has done previously, being available for small and medium sized businesses with fewer than 250 employees.
Please get in touch with any of your payroll questions.
The government has now confirmed the SSP Rebate Scheme will be reinstated from the 21st December 21. Claims can be made from mid-January 22, allowing you to make retrospective claims.
