What is small employer's relief?

Small Employer's Relief is a provision in the UK's National Insurance system designed to assist small employers in managing the financial burden of statutory payments, such as Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP), Statutory Paternity Pay (SPP), Statutory Adoption Pay (SAP), and Statutory Shared Parental Pay (ShPP). This relief is particularly relevant for businesses that face higher costs in providing these statutory payments due to their smaller size.

How do I create a small employer relief scheme?

If you are entitled to Small Employer’s Relief (SER), this is done in the Employer Setup within Cintra iQ. You can nominate the company as Small for the relevant tax year and record the Gross NIC Contributions for the previous year as a memo:
  1. Go to: Payroll > Payroll Setup > Employer Setup. The Employers Definition window
  2. Open the desired Employer definition. The employer window appears.
  3. Navigate to the Small Employer tab.
  4. Right-click: New in the SER (Small Employers' Relief) pane. The New PAYE Scheme form appears.
  5. Select the Employer Is Small (Qualifies for Small Employer Relief) option.
  6. Select the relevant tax year from the For Tax Year drop-down list.
  7. Enter the value for the Gross NIC Contributions For Previous Year (Memo).
  8. Click the OK button.
