Time running out for November furlough claims
Businesses have just days left to make a claim for staff furloughed in November, as the deadline ends on 14 December 2020.
Businesses can claim before, during or after they process their payroll, as long as the claim is submitted by this key deadline.
In future, all claims for periods starting on or after 1 November 2020 must be submitted within 14 calendar days after the month they relate to – unless this falls on a weekend, in which case the deadline is the next weekday.
The start of December also marks further changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), including:
- A ban on claiming CJRS grants for any days that your employee is serving a contractual or statutory notice period.
- The publication of names, an indication of the value of claims and company registration numbers of employers who make CJRS claims.
- Addition of claims information to employees’ Personal Tax Accounts for periods from December 2020 onwards.
It is important that you meet this upcoming deadline to ensure you have the funds necessary to pay furloughed staff members. If you require support with claiming the CJRS, please speak to your Seymour Taylor representative or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
