JOB RETENTION SCHEME

JOB RETENTION SCHEME

PLEASE NOTE: NOTE THIS GUIDANCE IS STILL INCOMPLETE AND THE GOVERNMENT NEED TO ISSUE FURTHER BRIEFING NOTES ON THE DETAIL.

Introduction

Under the coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, all UK employers with a PAYE scheme will be able to access support to continue paying part of their employees’ salary for those that would otherwise have been laid off during this crisis. This applies to employees who have been asked to stop working, but who are being kept on the payroll, otherwise described as “furloughed workers”. HMRC will reimburse 80% of their wages, up to £2,500 per month. This is to safeguard workers from being made redundant. The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme will cover the cost of wages backdated to 1ST March and is initially open for 3 months but will be extended if necessary.
