Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme

Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme

What is it?

The Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme is a new online service launching on 26 May for small and medium-sized employers to recover Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) payments they have made to their employees due to Coronavirus. 

Who is it for?

Small and medium-sized employers, with fewer than 250 employees.

How does it work?

Through this scheme, small and medium-sized employers will be able to receive repayments at the relevant rate of SSP that they have paid to current or former employees for eligible periods of sickness starting on or after 13 March 2020.

Tax agents will be able to make claims on behalf of employers.

What should I do next?

Make sure you keep records of all the SSP payments that they wish to claim from HMRC.

You can read further guidance on checking whether you can claim back SSP paid to employees due to coronavirus (COVID-19) on GOV.UK.
