Covid-19 Support

Hi community 
We wanted to make sure you were aware of the government’s support and advice for businesses during Covid-19. We have listed some tips that might be helpful below but do check out their website.
  • The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme has been put in place by the British Government to help protect the jobs of employees who would otherwise have been laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic

  • The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme has been extended until 31 March 2021 and the government will review the scheme in January 2021

  • Claims for furlough days in November 2020 must be submitted by 14 December 2020. Thereafter all future claim must be made by the 14th of the month following the month of furlough

  • You can no longer submit claims for claim periods ending on or before October 31 2020

  • For full and up to date HMRC guidance, please visit HMRC Guidance: Claim for wages through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

  • All businesses and self-employed people in financial distress and with outstanding tax liabilities may be eligible to receive support with their tax affairs through HMRC’s Time To Pay service. This is a case-by-case basis, and if you are concerned about being able to pay your tax due to COVID-19 you can call HMRC’s helpline on 0800 0159 559
  • For individuals: If you are self-isolating because of COVID-19: From 13 March, you can now claim SSP. This includes individuals who are caring for people self-isolating in the same household and therefore have been advised to do a household quarantine
