If an employee is on a salary sacrifice scheme and receives SMP, they do not have any pension deducted.
The employer’s deduction covers the amount you usually take from the employee.
So before SMP started, the employee’s pension deduction was 5%, with an employer’s deduction of 3%. Therefore, whilst on SMP, the whole 8% would be the employer’s pension amount.
Note: pensionable earnings are the usual earnings before SMP.
In this example, the Employer’s Pension Contribution is £160.00 (2000 * 8 %). We set the Assumed Pensionable Pay to £2,000.Anna Stephens, July 6th, 2022
