Calculating SSP: The simple way to achieve payment of Covid-19 SSP from Day One is to enter the start date for the Covid-19 SSP period three days earlier than the actual date the Covid-19 absence period started. This will result in the Covid-19 SSP payment starting from Day One of the absence period.
Claiming back SSP: HMRC has not yet given a definitive answer as to how employers can claim back the Covid-19 SSP payments they have made to their employees. Please kindly do not call us or write to us regarding how to reclaim the Covid-19 SSP as we genuinely do not have any further information or answers for you.
