COVID-19 furlough and financial support

COVID-19 furlough and financial support

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme has been extended to 31 March 2021.

From 1 November 2020 you can claim 80% of an employee's usual salary for hours not worked, up to a maximum of £2,500 per month.

All employers with a UK bank account and UK PAYE schemes can claim the grant. You do not need to have previously claimed for an employee before the 30 October 2020 to claim for periods from 1 November 2020.

Employers can furlough employees for any amount of time and any work pattern, while still being able to claim the grant for the hours not worked.

Please contact your HR advisor for further assistance.
