Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme
Under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), the Government announced that employers will be able to claim a grant from 1 March to cover 80 per cent of employees’ salaries up to a maximum of £2,500 per month.
This scheme originally ran until 30 June, however was then extended until the end of October.
The scheme has been extended again with the Government currently paying 80% of wages for the hours of furloughed employees up to a cap of £2,500 for periods from 1 November 2020 until 30 April 2021. The scheme only covers wages, meaning employers will be responsible for paying employer National Insurance contributions and employer pension contributions. As with the previous versions of the scheme, employers can choose to top up furloughed employees’ wages beyond the 80% paid by the government.
Job Support Scheme
The Job Support Scheme (JSS Open and JSS Closed) has been postponed indefinitely
