  • HMRC’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (‘CJRS’) guidance has been updated to confirm that claims for furlough days in April 2021 must be made by 14 May 2021.
  • For periods ending on or before 30 June 2021 employers can continue to claim 80% of an employee’s usual salary for hours not worked, up to a maximum of £2,500 per month.
  • From 1 July 2021, the level of grant will be reduced each month and employers will be asked to contribute towards the cost of any furloughed employees’ wages.
