Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme update

05-Jun-2020

How,  from August 1st employers will share the cost of the furlough scheme

The Chancellor has revealed how employers will be expected to share the cost of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme for furloughed workers.

To enable employers to retain employees who they otherwise may have been forced to lay off during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the Government introduced the CoronaVirus Job retention Scheme.  Currently, the scheme allows employers to claim 80% of furloughed employees’ wages, National Insurance (NI) and pension contributions.

The Chancellor, had recently extended the furlough scheme until the end of October. At the time, he indicated that employers would be expected to share the cost of the scheme and that furloughed workers would be able to return to work on a part-time basis in the future, and that the full scheme would end in October.

The following changes to the scheme have now been confirmed:

  • From 1st July, furloughed employees will be able to return to work on a part-time basis if required. Employers will be able to claim 80% of the wages, employer’s NI and pension contributions for the proportion of contracted hours that furloughed employees do not work during this month.

 

  • From 1st August, employers will have to pay the employer’s NI and pension contributions for all their furloughed employees. The scheme will continue to cover 80% of furloughed workers’ wages, capped at £2,500 per employee per month.

 

  • From 1st September, the scope of the scheme will be reduced to cover 70% of furloughed workers’ wages, capped at £2,187.50 per employee per month. Employers will have to continue to pay the employer’s NI and pension contributions for their furloughed employees.

 

  • From 1st October, the scope of the scheme will be reduced further to cover 60% of furloughed workers’ wages, capped at £1,875 per employee per month. Employers will have to continue to pay the employer’s NI and pension contributions for their furloughed employees.
