Additional Statutory Paternity Pay will be replaced by Shared Parental Pay
Payments & Deductions
ShPP payments are entered on the Payments & Deductions form (accessed from the Payroll - Processing form). You can enter both ShPP permanent and temporary values in the Perm Value and Temp Value columns on the form, even if you use the ‘Full ASPP Processing’ feature. This means that if ShPP will be paid for more than one week the value can be entered once, rather than separately each week that ShPP will be paid. Previously only temporary values could be entered for SPP payments if ‘Full ASPP Processing’ was used.
Payments & Deductions form
ShPP paid will be included in the FPS each time it is paid, along with the employees’ partners name and national insurance number, if available.
ShPP Partner Details
A new form called ShPP Partner Details has been added to the Statutory Payments menu (accessed from the Payroll – Processing form). Details entered here will be included in the FPS for employees who are paid ShPP.
Note: This applies to ShPP paid for both new births and adoptions.
Wherever ASPP Birth and ASPP Adopt were mentioned in the software, this has now been changed to ASPP/ShPP Birth and ASPP/ShPP Adopt in the 2015-16 tax year. This applies throughout both the Payroll and Personnel applications, an example being the Payment Profiles form (accessed from the Payroll - Maintenance menu).
Option ‘J’ now used for ASPP and ShPP
