November Furlough claims now open

From today you can submit your furlough claims for the period from 1 November 2020 via the Government’s portal.

Job Retention Scheme claims for the November period will need to be submitted by 14 December 2020.  In a change to the guidelines, all new furlough claims (from 1 November onwards) must now be submitted by 14 calendar days after the period that you’re claiming for.

If you still have claims outstanding for periods up to 31 October (prior to the scheme being extended), these must be submitted by 30 November 2020 and will not be accepted after this date.

As a reminder, the Job Retention Scheme has been extended to 31 March for all parts of the UK.  From 1 November, the government will pay 80% of employees’ usual wages for the hours not worked, capped at £2,500 per month, with employers still having to fund employer’s National Insurance and pension contributions.  The Chancellor has said that the scheme will be reviewed again in January.

The Job Retention Bonus will no longer be paid in February 2021, this will now be put in place at a more appropriate time.  The launch of the Job Support Scheme has also been postponed.

Here’s the key dates to be aware of:
