HMRC have issued this detailed guide to Shared Parental Leave and Pay intended for developers:
Please find attached the Developer Guide to Shared Parental Leave and Pay. This applies to children expected to be born (or matched for adoption) on or after 5th April 2015 but early births could mean that the first cases of Shared Parental Leave and Pay arise from Nov/Dec 2014.
The guide provides details about how Shared Parental Leave and Pay will work for employees and employers and also provides developer specific information such as validation checks and software requirements. Test data will also be produced to support the validation checks listed in the guidance. This will be issued in the coming weeks. This guide and forthcoming test data will published on the HMRC and Gov.uk websites in due course.
