Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme set to launch


The online service for the Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) Rebate Scheme will be available from 26 May 2020.

Employers are eligible under the Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme if they have a PAYE payroll scheme that started before 28 February 2020 and fewer than 250 employees before this date.

Employers can reclaim up to two weeks’ SSP paid to current or former employees after 13 March 2020. The repayment will start from the first qualifying day of sickness and applies in respect of SSP paid to:

· employees with coronavirus (COVID-19) or coronavirus symptoms;

· employees who are self-isolating and unable to work from home;

· or employees who are shielding because they are at high risk and have a letter from the NHS or a GP telling them to stay at home for at least 12 weeks.
