Statutory Sick Pay Rebate scheme

The Coronavirus SSP Rebate scheme was originally launched by the Government in May 2020 and ran until 30 September 2021. However, the temporary scheme is being reintroduced in order to support employers with increased levels of sickness absence due to COVID-19.

This means if you're eligible, from mid January, you can claim for COVID-related sickness absences occurring from 21 December 2021 onwards.

Health and Social Care levy

Did you know that from April 2022,  national insurance contributions are increasing by 1.25% for one year only for employees, employers and the self-employed? This is to help pay for increasing NHS costs, plus the increased costs of adult social care.
