There is still financial support available for Employers
If you’re bringing back your employees part time, you can claim furlough flexibly for them under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), part of the UK Government’s Plan for Jobs.
Claims for periods in June are now closed; if you need to make a change because you didn’t claim enough you can do this until 28 July.
Claims for periods in July and August are now both open.
To help you plan ahead for future claim periods, the CJRS calculator on the HMRC website is available to help you work out how much you can claim for employees up to the end of September.
For the latest information, HMRC have organised a live webinar. The webinar will include the following;
- who can claim
- who you can claim for
- how to calculate what you can claim
- how to claim
- bringing your employees back from furlough.
If you’re a small or medium-sized employer with fewer than 250 employees, you may also be eligible for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme.
HMRC have a recorded webinar about the Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme on their YouTube channel, for further guidance on the scheme, including who you can claim for, how to claim and what you may be entitled to.
You can also find out what other financial support may be available for you and your business as part of the UK Government’s Plan for Jobs, by searching ‘find coronavirus financial support’ on GOV.UK.
