CJRS will be ending on 30 September 2021
Throughout the pandemic, one of the many lifelines which enabled businesses to retain their staff and continue to remain viable was the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. Over recent months this has progressively been tapering off.
From 1 August 2021, the government will pay 60% of wages up to a maximum cap of £1,875 for the hours the employee is on furlough. Please remember that for claims (from 1st July 2021), employers must top up employees’ wages to make sure they receive 80% of their wages (up to £2,500) for the hours they are on furlough (caps are proportional to the hours not worked).
