Are you aware of the extension to the government Furlough Scheme?

As part of the new National Restrictions announcement the Coronavirus Job Support Scheme has been extended until December.

The furlough grant will mirror the levels in August with the Government paying 80% of wages (up to a cap of £2,500) and the Employer paying the Employers’ National Insurance and Pension Contributions.

Flexible furlough is also still possible so employees can work part of their usual hours and be furloughed for the rest.

Employees who have been included on a payroll submission to HMRC on or before 30th October are eligible – they do not have to have been furloughed previously.

The Job Support Scheme which was due to start 1st November has been postponed.
