Claiming back Statutory Sick Pay due to coronavirus
The Statutory Sick Pay Rebate (SSPR) service is now open. 

Your business could be eligible for support if you employed fewer than 250 employees on 30 November 2021, and you’ve paid Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) to your employees for coronavirus-related sickness absences.  

You could reclaim up to two weeks' SSP you have paid to your employees, at the relevant standard weekly rate of £96.35, for any eligible periods of coronavirus-related sickness from 21 December 2021. This is a new claims period.

You could claim to cover the costs for up to two weeks of SSP for an employee who takes time off because of coronavirus, regardless of whether you claimed for that employee under the previous scheme.

For full guidance, including eligibility and how to make a claim, search 'coronavirus-related SSP' on GOV‌‌‌.UK.

A warning about scams

If someone contacts you saying they’re from HMRC and wants you to urgently transfer money or give personal information, never let yourself be rushed.

There are many different types of scam. Some threaten you with immediate arrest for tax evasion, others offer a tax rebate. Do not panic. HMRC will never phone threatening you with arrest, only criminals do that. 

Take your time and check HMRC’s advice about scams on GOV‌‌‌.UK before you do anything. You can also phone HMRC directly, but make sure you use the contact details on GOV‌‌‌.UK.
