Government Confirms Extension to the JRS Scheme

Claims were originally permitted for periods to 31 May 2020 but due to the extension of social distancing restrictions for at least a further 3 weeks the Chancellor has extended the furlough payment period to 30 June.

The online portal for businesses to start filing their claims is due to be fully operational from Monday, April 20th. It will allow businesses to claim 80% of the wages for furloughed staff – up to £2,500 per month.

Brilliant service and advice from MAD-HR.   Thank you so much, you’ve made the process of taking on our first employee an absolute breeze! Highly recommended.
