In cases where your business unfortunately has to cease trading entirely and will not reopen after lockdown, you should use code 14 when ending employees’ service.

For details on ending an employee’s service on SimplePay, please see our help site. Please remember to also capture the anticipated reinstatement date at the same time so that we can generate a complete individual UI 19 for each employee.

More information on UIF codes is available in our COVID-19 UIF Quick Reference Guide.
