As a result of the second lockdown and new three-tier system, the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) has been extended to 31‌‌‌ ‌March 2021 for all parts of the UK.

From 1‌‌‌ ‌November 2020, the Government will pay 80% of employees’ usual wages for the hours not worked, up to a cap of £2,500 per month. The terms of the scheme will be reviewed in January.

If you‘ve made a claim, please remember to submit any claims for periods up to 31‌‌‌ ‌October on or before 30‌‌‌ ‌November – they will not be accepted after this date.

Submit any CJRS claims for November no later than 14‌‌‌ ‌‌December. You can claim before, during or after you process your payroll as long as your claim is submitted by the deadline.

Remember to keep any records that support the amount of CJRS grant you claim, in case HMRC needs to check them. You can view, print or download copies of your previously submitted claims by logging onto your CJRS service on the website.
