All UK employers on the PAYE scheme can access funding to pay part of the wages of employees who would have been laid off. HMRC will reimburse up to 80% of an employee’s wage up to a maximum of £2,500.
This scheme is backdated to March 1 and is open for 3 months. HMRC is working on getting this system up and running. We strongly recommend you speak to an accountant about how to access this scheme.
