Administering the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme
We appreciate that you are probably hard at work making the necessary arrangements and sourcing the required information for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) at the moment.
The portal went live this week and initial reports suggest that more than 140,000 businesses have made an application so far.
What we are learning from those who are applying for the scheme is that this isn’t a one size fits all process and certain employees or businesses will have requirements that are outside of the usual parameters of the scheme.
You should prepare all of the necessary information for the application beforehand, including calculations for those staff members that have been furloughed to make administering this task easier.
We thoroughly recommend that you seek advice from us if you are struggling to apply for the scheme or if you need help calculating your payroll.
