Employers no longer able to reclaim SSP

The Percentage Threshold Scheme (PTS), which allows employers to reclaim Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) in certain circumstances, was abolished from 6 April 2014.

If you’re looking to outsource your payroll please click here.

Assuming your business is eligible, you should ensure you claim the Employment Allowance which commenced on 6 April 2014.

From 6 April 2014 employers have been unable to recover SSP although recovery of unclaimed SSP for previous years remained recoverable for a limited period.

Do contact us if you think this may apply to your business.
