HMRC

The calculator to claim back SSP due to Coronavirus is now live on the Government website.

See: https://www.gov.uk/calculate-statutory-sick-pay

You are only responsible for paying SSP if:

  • you pay Class 1 National Insurance contributions for your employee (or would do if not for their age or their level of earnings)
  • your employee was sick for 4 or more days in a row (including non-working days)
  • your employee has told you they’re sick within your own time limit (or 7 days if you do not have one)

You cannot use the calculator for periods of sickness before 6 April 2011.
