CoronaVirus Job Retention Scheme Closure

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme ends on September 30th 2021 and claims for September must be made by 14 October 2021, with any amendments submitted by 28 October 2021. Employers can claim 60% of a furloughed employee’s wages, up to £1,875, and must contribute the remaining 20% so they receive at least 80% of their wages.
