How should I set up Shared Parental Pay?

Shared Parental Pay is a flexible way for parents to share their entitlement to paid leave. If your employee requests Shared Parental Pay, you should check their eligibility before setting it up on The Payroll Site. You can find out more about Shared Parental Pay here.

Shared Parental Pay is associated with a period of Statutory Maternity, Paternity or Adoption Pay (SMP/SPP/SAP). You should set up the SMP, SPP or SAP on the employee's Statutory Pay tab by clicking the 'Use Wizard' button and following the instructions. Once complete, click on the Week Pattern to set the pattern of Shared Parental Pay.
