19 January 2022

HMRC has today updated guidance in relation to the coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) Rebate Scheme.

Employees can claim up to 2 weeks SSP for employees who were absent for a coronavirus related reason on or after 21 December 2021. The requirement for the employer to have less than 250 employees remains, however the new assessment date for this is 30 November 2021.

Claims can be made for employees that had previously reached the 2 week limit in the first rebate scheme that closed on 30 September 2021.
