    Furlough

    Furlough payments can still be claimed by employers, but there are changes to look out for. From 1 September an employee who is furloughed will still receive 80% of their salary.

    However, the employer will only be able to claim 70% of this from the Government, having to top up the remaining 10% from their own funds.  Employers are also required to pa pension contributions and national insurance contributions and can no longer make these part of the furlough claim.

    From 1 October 2020, the scheme will change again, with employees still receiving 80% of salary under the scheme, but employers only able to claim 60% of this cost from the Government, with the extra 20% being funded by the employer.

    Some are wondering whether the furlough scheme will be extended, no news so far on this, but we will update you should this happen.
