Summary

  • BREAKING NEWS: PUBS, BARS, RESTAURANTS AND CAFES MUST CLOSE AS SOON AS THEY ARE ABLE ON 20/03/2020.
  • The Government have announced they will be paying 80% of your staff's wages, up to the monthly figure of £2,500 (per person), in an effort to stop employers from laying off their staff.
  • These will be backdated to 1st March 2020, and can be claimed directly from HMRC, aimed to be fully functioning by the END OF APRIL 2020.
  • HMRC are building this process from scratch and so time is needed to provide this support effectively and to make sure all are protected.
