Changes to Furlough Scheme

CHANGES TO FURLOUGH SCHEME

1st July 2020

Flexible Furlough can begin where employers can bring their employees back on a part time basis whereby the days worked will be paid at full by the employer and remaining days not worked will be classed as Furlough at 80% claimable from the government.

From 1st August 2020

If your employees are still on Furlough you will need to start paying the employers national insurance & pension contributions but still able to claim back the 80% furlough from the government.

From 1st September 2020

Employers will continue to pay the employers national insurance & pension contributions. The government will now cover 70% of furlough wages. The employer will need to top up the remaining 10% or higher (depending on what was agreed with the employee)

From 1st October 2020

Employers will continue to pay the employers national insurance & pension contributions. The government will now cover 60% of furlough wages. The employer will need to top up the remaining 20% or higher (depending on what was agreed with the employee).
