HMRC Latest Update On Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme For Employers and Employees
6th April 2020
Issued by HMRC today 6 April 2020.
On 27 March I emailed you to advise that the latest guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme had been published at the links below, and we committed to keep you regularly updated.
I can now confirm that the employer guidance and guidance for employees have been further updated in line with some of the main queries we have received from stakeholders. Whilst all the guidance has been refreshed, the main areas I would draw your attention to are:
the more detailed information on scheme eligibility
further information on how to calculate a claim
clarification of what constitutes wages.
I would encourage you to please review the links above if you would like more information about the scheme.
We will continue to keep you informed to ensure that you have access to the assistance you need.
The scheme is being revised regularly so anyone is advised to check it every few days as it is still being developed.
