  • Repayment of Maternity Pay

    Hello, My wife's employer is requesting the return of her contractual maternity pay due to a job change before return to her old role. They are requesting the total amount of her salary to be repaid this seems to include income tax, NI, pensions and student loan deductions. I am hoping someone can clarify if this would be correct or if we are just liable for the net received pay (her pay check minus statuary maternity pay)? Naturally even on repayment this throws up some issues with overpayments of tax from the previous tax year, how can we reclaim the tax owed post repayment from the previous tax year? Thanks for your help, Scott
