Shared parental leave and pay

Keep shared parental leave and pay records

You must keep records for HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), including:

  • the evidence provided by the employee to show that they’re eligible for statutory shared parental pay (ShPP)
  • the date ShPP began
  • your ShPP payments (including dates)
  • the ShPP you’ve reclaimed
  • any weeks you did not pay and why

You must keep records for at least three years from the end of the tax year they relate to.
