Coronavirus (COVID-19): Updated HMRC guidance for employers on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

HMRC has updated its guidance for employers on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) with several changes. These include information to clarify that the eligibility to make a claim under the CJRS depends on employment on or after certain dates, updates to state that employee authorised salary deductions can be made from grant payments provided that these deductions are not administration charges, fees or other costs in connection with the employment. Information has also been added to state that the amount claimed for NICs cannot be more than 13.8% of the grant claimed for employee's wages. The calculator to work out claims has been updated and can now be used for employees who have received top ups or discretionary payments in the claim period.
