Statutory Paternity Pay Changes

Changes to the existing Paternity Pay and Leave (PPL) entitlement, led out of the Department for Business and Trade (DBT), will introduce greater flexibility for fathers, moving to a more equal system of parental leave and pay to promote gender equality. Employed fathers-to-be will be able to provide notice of entitlement 28 days prior to birth/placement of adoption and 4 weeks’ notice prior to taking Paternity Leave. An employed father will be able to take PPL in 2 non-consecutive periods of 1 week or a 2-week block within 52 weeks of the birth of the child or placement for adoption.

Other RTI changes

For the 2024-25 tax year, Pegasus have introduced the The usual ‘year on year’ uplifts to support a new tax year. A few things to note here are as follows:  The additional NI codes applicable to the Investment Zone legislation will be
allowable in 2024/25 but not within the remaining periods of 2023/24.  The validation on a SMP payment having to be paid to a female employee has
been removed from 2024/25.
