COVID-19 - Ulster Society webinar: the job retention scheme

Apr 20, 2020

The Ulster Society is holding a 1-hour webinar at 11am on Thursday 23 April. Book at The event is free of charge.

One of the key areas for UK businesses and their advisers during the health crisis has been access to Government support, and in particular the job retention scheme.

If you cannot maintain your current workforce because your operations have been severely affected by COVID-19, you may be able to furlough employees and apply for a grant that covers 80 per cent of their usual monthly wage costs. This is a temporary scheme in place for 4 months starting from 1 March 2020 which may be extended if necessary. Leontia Doran, the Institute’s UK tax specialist will be on the panel taking your questions.
