The UK's Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (resource and factsheet)

Apr 21, 2020

We have published a resource for members providing guidance on the UK Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (“CJRS”), which was announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer on Friday 20 March 2020. The content has been derived entirely from HMRC’s guidance and communications directly to Chartered Accountants Ireland on the CJRS.

We will be developing a similar page in the coming weeks to provide guidance on the coronavirus self-employment income support scheme which is due to begin making payments by early June 2020.

We have also developed an Institute factsheet on the UK Government's Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme that sets out key information on the W5 (who, what, where, when and why) of the scheme.

The Institute will continue to engage with HMRC on our members behalf in respect of COVID-19 supports and will share the most up to date information as it becomes available.
