How do I change an employees status to furloughed for the retained employee benefit under coronavirus aid

Hello Mensroom UK

 

Which payroll are you using, Paysuite, Advanced or standard?

We can certainly go through how to record this based on which payroll you have

Hi escotland,

 

You can follow the steps below to record the employee's pay as furloughed:

 

  1. Start by going to Payroll settings
  2. Now select Pay Categories, and then Add
  3. Set the pay category as Taxable, and Niable
  4. Go back to your list of Employees
  5. Select a furloughed employee
  6. On the left, go to "Pay rates"
  7. Select your newly created category, and select Show in Pay Run

Repeat the process with all impacted employees. Please note you should enter the wage as 100%, and then 80% of this figure can be re-claimed by HMRC. 

 

You can edit the employee's regular salary to 0 or enter the salaried amount for the hours they were able to work in the period prior to furlough while running the payroll.

Thanks 🙂
