Hello @user67745,

 

When you set up the employee on SSP, we can go ahead and adjust the date from there, so that the 3 days will be calculated when you run the payroll.  The steps adding SSP to your employee payroll depends on how you pay them. 

 

Setting the SSP:

  1. Go to Employees.
  2. Select the applicable employee.
  3. Click Payment & Deductions.
  4. Select the Offset SSP checkbox as required.
  5. Save.
  6. If you wish to amend the Offset SSP item on other employees, use the dropdown menu to select the relevant employee.
  7. Save.

Entering an Absence Record for an Employee:

  1. Go to the Employees tab.
  2. Select the applicable employee and choose Absences.
  3. Select the Absence Type as Statutory Sick Pay and enter the Start Date
  4. Select Create New Absence.
  5. Enter the relevant information in the fields.
  6. Select Save.
  7. If you need to amend the End Date on an Employee’s SSP absence record, enter the absence record as above and select the entry under the Existing Absence Records.

If you want to track and manage your employee's payroll information, here's an article about QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll Hub for your reference.

Good evening,

 

Thank you for getting back to me. I do not have a "Payment & Deductions" option available. I am using the UK version of Quickbooks online. I have added the SSP for the member of staff and needed to run payroll this evening as she is paid weekly. She has started self-isolation today so I needed to pay her SSP starting from today for a period of 14 days.

My company ID is [removed] if that helps?

Hi there, user67745.

 

We removed you Company ID from this thread to protect the security of your account. The Community is a public forum and everyone can see all the information that you've shared in this thread.

 

Do you also see an Actions button in the upper-right hand corner of the employee's profile? If so, click on that and select Employee's leave. Then, select Statutory Sick Pay. This is the page where you can add the employee's sick leave details.

 

However, the new guideline about removing the initial 3-day wait period isn't added yet in QuickBooks. This is because this is a recent update and our engineers are still working on the details provided by the HMRC.

 

I would also recommend contacting our Payroll Support Team so they can check on your account and provide you other options. Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Help menu in the upper-right hand corner.
  2. Click Contact Us
  3. Let them know that you need help with paying an employee's SSP.
  4. Click Let's talk, then select Start a chat or Get a callback.

Let me know if you need anything else.
