Relaunched Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme

The Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme has now been relaunched with updated guidance available on the HMRC website.

The scheme allows employers to claim back SSP paid to employees eligible for SSP due to COVID related absence. The employer must have already paid the employee the SSP and claims can only be made for employees who have been off work on or after the 21st December 22.

An employer can use the Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme if the PAYE scheme was created and started on or before the 30th November 21. The employer also needs to have had fewer than 250 employees across all their PAYE schemes on 30th November 21.

At Alderley Payroll Services we will be able to make claims for all clients we have HMRC agent authorisation for. If we aren’t currently your agent, we can make this application free of charge.
