Useful Information for Businesses – Update 16th April 2020

Within this daily blog we aim to give you top-line, up-to-date information at a glance with links to relevant sites that explain in more detail relevant news, support, and financial help that we hope will make a difference to your business during the Covid19 Crisis and beyond:

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) eligibility date to 19 March 2020

Employers can claim for furloughed employees that were employed and on their PAYE payroll on or before 19 March 2020. This means that the employee must have been notified to HMRC through an RTI submission notifying payment in respect of that employee on or before 19 March 2020.

If any employer now thinks they are eligible for support, they can find out more here.
