Reclaiming statutory sick pay
The Government has stated that they are working with employers over the coming months to set up a repayment mechanism for employers as soon aspossible.
Under the current rules, SSP is offset against the tax and National Insurance liability, however, as this is likely to be low or possibly zero, it is essential that you as an employer receive this money back.

A loan scheme will be delivered by the British Business Bank which will be launched in a matter of weeks to give businesses access to bank lending and overdrafts.
