Ssp

JodieRJodieR Experienced MentorRegistered Posts: 1,002
One of my client's employees has been off sick since 12th March. Although I pointed out at the time that he was due SSP my client had various reasons/excuses not to pay it. He finally today agreed to pay him what he's due for the past 8 weeks. I've not yet filed the P35 for 2012/13. Should I be processing his SSP on a week-by-week basis (ie some falling due in 2012/13 and some in 2013/14) or just enter it as a lump sum paid this week?

Hope someone can help!

    Hi Jodie
    Yes, technically you should be processing it week by week, dont forget to exclude the waiting days (think it may be 3 but check it out on the gov.uk website) I think it may make a difference to the employees NI record if you just pay a lump sum.

    Thanks, I ended up calling the employers helpline and they confirmed that I must process it on a weekly basis. All sorted now!
