Smp calculator

  1. http://smpcalculator.hmrc.gov.uk/SMP1.

    This is the link for employers to work out how much Smp to pay their staff... And according to this people leaving in jan do not get September pay taken into consideration. They use July and august as the qualifying months- which means that if you are due a tlr or a point scale rise then this won't be considered in mat pay!? I think this is terrible! Any one know a way round it or if it can be changed!?!?

    When i went on maternity leave last time - Jan 2010 - I found all my maternity pay was based on my September pay scale rise (does that make sense!)
    You could always call HR/payroll to see what they say.
    Hope that helps!

    We seem to be doing exactly the same thing - going at Oct half term. I'm moving up the pay scale this september (moving to UPS so has been confirmed by Head/Governors/HR) so I know that is definately happening. I've been told that maternity pay will be based on new pay level, but i have calculated both new and previous scale to give myself an indication of what I might be getting... fingers crossed it's the higher rate!!
     
  8. Thanks Millie. Here's hoping! I'll confirm with HR on Monday- 1st day back!
    Also, Here's to a healthy and productive half term, I'm tired already :) xx
     
  9. i went at october half term and got maternity pay that was halfway between the two pay points. it's meant to be based on your average wage in the 15 weeks preceeding maternity leave so i guess that's what happened with mine.
