Final claims for the Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme

Date: Wednesday 23 February 2022

The Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme will close on 17 March 2022. Businesses have until 24 March 2022 to submit any new claims for absence periods up to 17 March 2022, or to amend claims already submitted.

Businesses will no longer be able to claim back Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) for employees’ coronavirus-related absences or self-isolation that occur after 17 March 2022.

From 25 March, HMRC will return to the normal SSP rules, which means businesses can revert to paying SSP from the fourth qualifying day an employee is off work, regardless of the reason for their sickness absence.
