At Quickpaye, we’re committed to keeping our clients informed about important changes that may impact their payroll operations. As we approach the new tax year, it’s crucial to be aware of updates to statutory payments, which can affect both employers and employees.

Here’s what you need to know about the recent changes:

Standard Rate Increase for Statutory Maternity, Paternity, Adoption, and Shared Parental Payments:

Effective from April 6th, 2024, the standard rate for Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP), Statutory Paternity Pay (SPP), Statutory Adoption Pay (SAP), and Statutory Shared Parental Pay (ShPP) has increased from £172.48 per week to £184.03 per week. This adjustment aims to provide greater support to employees during periods of leave related to childbirth, adoption, and childcare responsibilities.

What This Means for Employers:

  • Employers should ensure that payroll systems are updated to reflect the new standard rate for statutory payments.
  • When processing payroll for employees on maternity, paternity, adoption, or shared parental leave, employers should use the revised rate to calculate their entitlements accurately.
  • It’s essential to communicate these changes to affected employees to avoid any confusion or discrepancies in their payments.
Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) Changes:

Additionally, Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) will see an increase from £109.40 per week to £116.75 per week, effective from April 6th, 2024. This adjustment aims to provide better support to employees who are unable to work due to illness or injury, ensuring that they receive adequate compensation during their absence from work.
