HOW TO CLAIM CJRS – LATEST GUIDANCE 10 APRIL 2020

HMRC have released details of how to make a claim under the CJRS. The portal should be available from 20 April and the first payments are expected to be made to employers by 30 April.

To claim, you will need:

  • your employer PAYE reference number

  • the number of employees being furloughed

  • National Insurance Numbers for the employees you want to furlough

  • Names of the employees you want to furlough

  • Payroll/works number for the employees you want to furlough

  • your Self Assessment Unique Taxpayer Reference or Corporation Tax Unique Taxpayer Reference or Company Registration Number

  • the claim period (start and end date)

  • amount claimed (per the minimum length of furloughing of 3 consecutive weeks)

  • your bank account number and sort code

  • your contact name

  • your phone number

  • You will need to calculate the amount you are claiming. HMRC will retain the right to retrospectively audit all aspects of your claim. The guidance is being updated regularly, therefore, we would recommend checking https://www.gov.uk/guidance/claim-for-wage-costs-through-the-coronavirus-job-retention-scheme prior to making a claim to ensure that you have all of the information required.

    To be eligible for the grant employers must confirm in writing to their employee that they have been furloughed. A record of this communication must be kept for five years. If you have not yet confirmed furlough leave to your employees in writing and would like assistance with this then please get in touch with your normal contact at FourM, or email us at admin@four-m.co.uk
