Statutory payment calculators

04 July 2018

Has anyone encountered any problems when using the Statutory payment calculators on the GOV.UK website?

If you have, please email [email protected] with any problems that you encountered?

A member has contacted the advisory service to tell us that when they used the Statutory Maternity pay (SMP) calculator on the GOV UK website it did not appear to be working correctly.  When  working out the Average weekly earnings (AWE) it appears to be rounding the figure up whilst it clearly states on the website ‘do not round up or down.’

We have raised this as an issue with HMRC but if anyone else has encountered any problems, please let us know so that we can pass your feedback on to HMRC.
