Changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme from September 2020

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme will close on 31 October 2020.

Just a reminder about the changes to the CJRS for September.

For September, the government will pay 70% of wages up to a cap of £2,187.50 per month for the hours the employee is on furlough. Employers will pay ER NICs and pension contributions and top up employees’ wages to ensure they receive 80% of their wages up to a cap of £2,500, for time they are furloughed.

HMRC is offering further guidance and live webinars on changes to the scheme and how they impact businesses are available to book online.
