Coronavirus News:    A Step-By-Step Guide for Employers - how to claim Furlough Leave payments from HMRC

Coronavirus logo

On 29 April the Government updated its guide for employers on how to make a claim for Furloughed employees under the new Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. 

  • Employers can access the document online here

Once you have created and submitted the claim: 

  • HMRC will verify your claim and you will receive the funds in six working days.

  • Keep hold of your claim reference number. Print out the confirmation screen.

  • Retain calculations that form the basis of your claim in case further information is required by HMRC.

  • Inform your Furloughed employees that you have made a claim and that they do not need to take any further action.
