Furlough scheme portal opens for claims on 20 April

HMRC has announced plans to open the online Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) service on 20 April

Key points at a glance…

  • The scheme is due to go live on 20 April with first payments being made 10 days later

  • Applicants will access the system using their current government gateway login

  • Following the initial backdated claims, claims can be made no more than 14 days before payrolls are run but will be accepted for the different pay periods

  • Future claims will be paid within four to six days

  • Tax agents who are authorised to act for PAYE matters will be able to file claims on behalf of their clients

  • File-only agents and payroll bureaus will not be able to access the service “due to data protection reasons”.

  • The online CJRS service is now undergoing beta testing with a group of selected employers

  • Further guidance will be issued by HMRC explaining on how to use the system
