  • Can a non-UK organisation with employees apply for a grant under the coronavirus (COVID-19) job retention scheme if it has created and started a pay as you earn payroll scheme on or before 28 February 2020 and has a UK bank account?

HMRC updated its guidance for employers on the coronavirus (COVID-19) job retention scheme (CJRS) on 4 April 2020, and some of the revisions it has made are relevant to this query.

As initially drafted, the guidance for employers stated that any UK organisation with employees could apply for a grant under the scheme if they:

  1. had created and started a pay as you earn (PAYE) payroll scheme on or before 28 February 2020, and

  2. had a UK bank account

The guidance did not clarify what it meant by a ‘UK organisation’.
