Furlough Extension

Posted: 12 May 2020

The government has announced a four month extension to the Furlough Scheme.

The scheme will continue for all sectors until the 31st October 2020 but will offer greater flexibility; Employers currently using the scheme will then be able to bring furloughed employees back part-time. The 80% of wages up to £2,500 remains unchanged. However the government will ask companies to “start sharing” the cost of furloughing from August 2020. Details of this are yet to be confirmed. We will update our website when more information is available.

“Furloughing” of Directors of Personal Service Companies Supplying the Public Sector

Posted: 03 April 2020

Measures were announced yesterday, and some commentators initially thought the changes meant that all directors of small companies could be furloughed, with the rules being likely to be extended to those supplying the private sector as well – this is not the scheme. Instead it is an added measure to help business/individuals, along with the furlough of employees and the help for the self-employed, that were both previously announced. (more…)
