Covid-19 SSP rebate scheme is now closed
The COVID-19 SSP Rebate Scheme launched by the Government in May 2020 closed at the end of September 2021.
The scheme enabled small and medium businesses to reclaim statutory sick pay (SSP) costs where employees were absent from work due to coronavirus.
From 1 October, all employers will once again be responsible for covering the full cost of SSP.
There is a deadline of 31st December 2021 to file or amend any claims for SSP in respect of coronavirus-related absences prior to the end of September 2021.
