Covid-19: Job Retention Scheme Update

HMRC have announced important updates to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme relating to employee eligibility:

  • you can claim for employees that were employed as of 19 March 2020 and were on your PAYE payroll on or before that date; this means that you will have made an RTI submission notifying us of payment of that employee on or before 19 March 2020
  • employees that were employed as of 28 February 2020 and on payroll (i.e. notified to us on an RTI submission on or before 28 February) and were made redundant or stopped working for you after that, and prior to 19 March 2020, can also qualify for the scheme if you re-employ them and put them on furlough.

In addition they have released further guidance on the claim process.

More information on this and how to claim can be found onĀ GOV.UK.
