The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – September 21

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) is finishing on the 30th September 21. The final date the September claim can be made is 14th October 21.

The scheme has previously been extended several times, but so far there is no news to suggest this will happen again so it’s important to prepare for the closure of the scheme.

For September the amount the employer can claim back is 60% up to £1,875, though the employer must at a minimum top the employees pay up to 80%.
