SMP calculator on monthly payments
07 July 2017
GOV.UK has implemented a fix to the Statutory Maternity Payments (SMP) calculator; this can now be used for normal monthly calculations.
We previously reported an issue with the SMP calculator as we had received reports from members that it was not calculating correctly.
We reported the issue to HMRC and they have now informed us that the calculator can now be used for normal monthly calculations.
However HMRC is still working with GOV.UK to find a way for the calculators to deal with mistimed payments, so in the interim these will have to be completed by your own payroll or by manual calculation.
Please let the Policy team know if you experience any further issues with the SMP calculator; you can email us at policy.
