at this time during Covid 19 we can not run our payroll as normal, we have employees who need paying and we are asking questions about SSP and making an employee furlough which you wouldn’t normally get, instead of finding out the correct answers you are giving us standard answers, it’s frustrating
If your employees are off due to self isolation then you do not record this as normal SSP you will have to create an additional payment category. If your employees are no able to work 'Furloghed' again you will have to create a separate pay category, separate to the COVID 19 self isolation category, and pay the 80% of their normal wages which will be subject to PAYE, NI and pension deductions. You will be able to claim this back using the HMRC portal including Employer National Insurance contributions and minimum automatic enrollment employer pension contributions on that wage. It is your choice whether you pay your employee the other 20% of their wage, this will be ran as normal, in addition to the other Furlough category on your pay-run.
