Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme Claim Form
To help you in submitting claims for furloughed staff under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), we have designed a bespoke form that will assist your business in collating the relevant information for your claim. Please enter your details below to download the form.
On 20 April, HMRC launched the portal where claims can be made. To reduce pressure on HMRC’s phone service, the portal is designed to be a self-serve function with guidance in place.
We’re aware of a number of companies who have ‘unfurloughed’ some of their furloughed employees. The latest version of our claim form allows you to deal with employees who cease being furloughed during a month.
Update 1 June: CJRS will close to new entrants from Tuesday 30 June, so to comply with the minimum three-week furlough rule new entrants must be furloughed by Wednesday 10 June.
From July, CJRS will allow flexible part-time working. CJRS will pay employee costs (up to the threshold) for the time they are furloughed, while employers will pay employees for the time they are working.
The percentage of wages paid by CJRS will change each month from July-October until the scheme closes on 31 October. To ensure our claim form is as accurate as possible, we will update it when further details (worked examples) are provided by the government later in June.
For any areas of your claim where you are uncertain, please get in touch with us for specific guidance.
Where agent authority is in place with HMRC for PAYE matters, agents will be able to make the claim on behalf of their clients. If agents or payroll bureaus are ‘file only agents’ i.e. file payroll with no HMRC authority, they will not be able to make the claim.
If we are not your agent then we can ask for authority from HMRC so that we can make claims on your behalf.
If you would like help using the form or any other aspects of the CJRS, please get in touch with Chris Smith, our Director of Personal Tax Compliance.
