Amendment - 15/04/2020

HMRC on 15th April amended the requirements for Companies to apply for a grant under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and the employees that you can claim for.

Initially, the requirement was that the Company had created and started a payroll scheme on or before 28 February 2020. This has now been changed to the 19 March 2020.

The Company could also only claim for employees that were on the payroll on or before the 28 February. This has been changed to employees that were on the Company’s payroll on or before 19th March and were notified to HMRC on an RTI submission on or before 19 March.
