Chancellor extends (CJRS) furlough scheme to end of June

by | Apr 20, 2020

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme has been extended by one month to reflect the extension to the UK’s lockdown period.   It is hoped that the move will allow firms from across UK to continue to protect millions of jobs.

The scheme that is keeping millions of people in jobs will be extended for a further month until the end of June – providing businesses with the certainty they need.

To remind you the scheme, which allows firms to furlough employees with the government paying cash grants of 80% of their wages up to a maximum of £2,500, was originally open for three months and backdated from the 1 March to the end of May.
