CORONAVIRUS SICK PAY SCHEME LAUNCHES TODAY

The online service for the Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme has launched today, enabling employers with fewer than 250 employees to apply to HMRC to recover the costs of paying coronavirus-related SSP.

Employers can claim for periods of sickness covering up to two weeks starting on or after 13 March 2020 (if their employee had coronavirus or the symptoms, or was self-isolating because someone they live with had symptoms) or 16 April 2020 (if their employee was shielding because of coronavirus).
