Are you re-opening your business, or planning to do so shortly?

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 28‌‌‌‌‌‌th ‌July.

Claims for periods in July and August are now open.

To help you plan ahead for future claim periods, the CJRS calculator is available to help you work out how much you can claim for employees up to the end of September.

For the latest information, you can join an upcoming live HMRC webinar. You can ask questions throughout the meeting.

  • who you can claim for

  • bringing your employees back from furlough.

There are useful handouts for you to download and they will also send you a link to a recording after the live webinar.

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.

You can view their recorded webinar about the Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme on HMRC’s 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, HERE.
