On 1 September, the next changes to the Job Retention Scheme came into play.
Employers must now contribute 10% toward their furloughed staff’s wages. This is due to the drop from 80% to 70% that HMRC will now pay to employees.
The amount paid to the employee from HMRC will now be capped at £2,187.50 per month for all hours not worked.
If you want to read more about the scheme as a whole, or would like to see a month-by-month break down of the scheme changes, visit our recent post on Changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
To claim for the scheme, you can access the government gateway now. You’ll need your own Government Gateway user ID and password to log in, which you will have received when you registered for PAYE online.
