The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) closes on 31‌‌‌ ‌October 2020 and you will need to make any final claims on or before 30‌‌‌ ‌November.

You will not be able to submit or add to any claims after 30‌‌‌ ‌November 2020.

From 1‌‌‌ ‌October, the UK government has paid employers 60% of usual wages up to a cap of £1,875 per month for the hours furloughed employees do not work.

You continue to pay your furloughed employees at least 80% of their usual wages for the hours they do not work, up to a cap of £2,500 per month. You need to fund the difference between this and the CJRS grant yourself.

For help with calculations, please visit the following pages on the GOV.UK website 'Calculate how much you can claim using the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.'

You’ll also continue to pay employer National Insurance and pension contributions from your own funds.

You must keep the records that support the amount of CJRS grant you have claimed in case HMRC needs to check it. You can now view, print or download copies of your previously submitted claims by logging onto your CJRS service on GOV‌‌‌‌.UK.
