Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme: Changes from today

If you're an employer, you need to be aware of the new changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS).

We've previously included a timeline of all of the upcoming changes in our previous newsletters but as a reminder, here is what is changing from today.


From 1‌ September HMRC will now pay 70% of usual wages up to a cap of £2,187.50 per month for the hours furloughed employees do not work.

What you need to know
  • You must continue to pay furloughed employees 80% of their usual wages for the hours they do not work, up to a cap of £2,500 per month. Employers will need to fund the difference between this and the CJRS grant themselves.
  • The caps are proportional to the hours not worked. For example, if an employee is furloughed for half their usual hours in September, employers are entitled to claim 70% of their usual wages for the hours they do not work up to £1,093.75 (50% of the £2,187.50 cap).
  • You must continue to pay furloughed employees’ National Insurance and pension contributions from your own funds.
