There are a number of COVID support scheme deadlines approaching.

  • From tomorrow Tuesday 26 January, HMRC are commencing publication of employer’s CJRS claims unless an employer’s application to stop publication on the grounds of violence or intimidation is accepted. Such applications must be made before tomorrow’s publication date and should be accompanied by supporting evidence;
  • December 2020 CJRS claims, where an underpayment arose, can be amended until Thursday‌‌ ‌28‌‌ ‌January;
  • Friday 29 January is the deadline to apply for the third self-employed income support scheme grant; and
  • The next claim deadline for the CJRS for the month of January is Monday 15 February unless reasonable excuse is available.

HMRC has also updated the CJRS guidance ‘Calculate how much you can claim using the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme’ which sets out that the calculator cannot be used if employees have variable pay, were not on their employer’s payroll on or before 19 March 2020 and have been on more than one period of furlough after 1 November 2020.
