Let’s get back to business

Dear customer,

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.

You can currently claim for pay periods in August and September.

If you submitted a claim for July and need to make a change because you didn’t claim enough, you can also do this until 11.‌‌59pm‌‌ ‌this coming‌‌ ‌Tues‌‌day, 31‌‌ ‌August.

For the latest information, join our live webinar; you can ask questions using the on-screen text box, although we can’t discuss personal circumstances.

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme: During the live webinar we will look at who can claim, who you can claim for, how to calculate your claim, how to claim, and bringing back your employees’ from furlough.

You’ll be able to download some useful handouts and we’ll 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.

View our 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, by searching ‘find coronavirus financial support’ on GOV‌‌.UK.

We’ll continue to review our webinars to give the most up-to-date information, and welcome your feedback at the end of the session too.
