Qualifying earnings

Qualifying earnings are measured on a band of earnings between the lower earnings limit and the upper earnings limit (between £6,240 and £50,270 for tax year 2021/22). The band is reviewed by the Government each year. Qualifying earnings include salary, wages, overtime, bonuses and commission, statutory sick pay, and any statutory pay received during paternity, maternity or any other kind of family leave.
