Moneysoft, CJRS and SMP

How?

Didn't find your answer?

Does anyone know how to have Moneysoft adjust the CJRS claim when SMP is included (made up to 100%)?

I could do it by hand, but quite like the report thing.

How can you be on furlough and maternity leave at the same time ?

Imho, furlough ends when maternity pay begins.

Looks like it's when the employee already has additional contractually entitled Maternity Pay:-

maternity pay
adoption pay
paternity pay
shared parental pay
parental bereavement pay

Haven't done it in practice buy would guess on the CJRS tab treat the SMP as Pay whilst working.

It may do it automatically as SMP isn't one of the 'ticks' you can do on the 'Pay whilst Furloughed' tab.

I've done one of these already and this is correct. Any pay which isn't included in the furlough amount will be included in the pay whilst working column so you can still use the moneysoft calculator for it.

Nope. The CJRS tab shows:

Pay whilst furloughed £910.67
Pay whilst working £756 (this is the SMP)
Gross pay claim £1333.34

The gross pay claim (and by extension, the NIC and pension) are wrong, being based on the total reference pay.

The employer has made up to full pay each month since SMP started. The annoying thing is, it ends in June, which also happens to be the first month of furlough. If only she could have got up the duff a month earlier it wouldn't be an issue.

I think you will need to adjust the reference pay to get the right result:-

8.6 No CJRS claim may include amounts of specified statutory payments in respect of an employee during the employee’s period of furlough and the gross amount of earnings falling for reimbursement as described in paragraph 8.2 must be correspondingly reduced.
