You can deduct up to £100 weekly from employment income for a maximum of 39 weeks if you receive:
  • Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP)
  • Statutory Adoption Pay (SAP)
  • Statutory Paternity Pay (SPP) or
  • Statutory Shared Parental Pay (ShPP)

If you receive Maternity Allowance you do not need to declare this as income.

There is detailed guidance on GOV.UK Tax credits: working out income if you need help working out your income.
