Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme Set to Launch

Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme Set to Launch

The government has announced that the Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme (CSSPRS) will be launched on 26th May 2020.

This scheme will allow small and medium-sized employers with fewer than 250 employees, to apply to HMRC through a new online portal to reclaim Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) payments made to their employees, when the absence was related to coronavirus.

Our team have put together a handy factsheet as at 20th May 2020 to provide you with some of the details of the Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme.

The Chancellor announced the expansion of SSP in the light of the pandemic in the Spring Budget and it took effect from 13th March 2020. The changes resulted in SSP payments being made to employees from the first day of illness (no waiting days applied).
Designed to help fund the cost of the first 2 weeks of SSP, smaller employers will be able to make their claims through the new online service from 26th May 2020.
