Statutory Sick Pay for record-keeping:
The SSP record keeping requirements was abolished at the end of the 2013-14 tax year by HMRC. However, for Pay As You Earn (PAYE) purposes, you will still be required to maintain SSP records. Our application will continue to allow you to add a Statutory Sick Pay Record (SSP).

Select the Pay Frequency of the employee clicking on the respective Pay Frequency. Then select the appropriate pay period to be processed. The default Processing Date will always be determined by the current calendar date. To enter SSP details, click on the Enter link in the Other Payment column for the employee concerned. Click on P3, the SSP Payment & Record link.

From the SSP Payment type drop down, select Option 1. Pay SSP Only plus whatever he/she has worked, or Option 2. Reduce Full Basic Pay by SSP Amount if you want the employee's gross basic pay to be reduced/offset by the SSP amount. Enter the SSP absence From and To Date and click on the Save to save the SSP payment details.
