CJRS furlough update

The Treasury has issued a direction which formally extends the ongoing CJRS furlough period until the 30th April 2021, an extension of one month.

It also clarifies that the reference period for establishing ‘normal’ pay as a basis for making a payment and claim for these periods should be the corresponding months in 2019, not 2020, as the likelihood is that employees may have been furloughed in March and April 2020.

There are also changes to the claim time period, which is extended from the middle of the following month to the end of the following month.

The full six-page direction can be found here.

As always, if you have any questions you can contact the team on 0141 221 3181, thank you.
