HM Revenue and Customs have written to employers and agents to let them know that the Statutory Sick Pay Rebate (SSPR) service is now open from Wednesday 19th January 2022.
Employers could be eligible for support if they employed fewer than 250 employees on 30th November 2021, and they’ve paid Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) to their employees for coronavirus-related sickness absences.
Employers can reclaim up to two weeks’ SSP they have paid to their employees, at the standard weekly rate of £96.35, for any eligible periods of coronavirus-related sickness from 21 December 2021.
This is a new claims period. Employers can claim costs for up to two weeks of SSP for an employee who takes time off because of coronavirus, regardless of whether employers claimed for that employee under the previous scheme.
Agents can make claims on behalf of their client employers.
