Government HMRC employers guidance on UK job retention scheme update 27 Mar 20

Posted on

Yesterday evening, 26 Mar 20, UK Government and HMRC published employers guidance on the UK job retention scheme.  The new guidance clarifies many of the questions raised by employers and businesses since the scheme was announced last week.  It is UK guidance.  You may wish to circulate the detail to your local business community:

Yesterday’s announcements of support for the self-employed have prompted a host of questions, queries and objections, as did the employees scheme when it was announced. It is safe to assume that similar clarification and guidance will follow next week, probably in a similar time-frame (I.e. not before mid week?).
