Updates to the furlough scheme came in on Sunday 1st August 2021 and will remain in place until 30th September when the scheme is set to end.
From now on, you’ll only be able to claim 60% of a furloughed employee’s wage to a maximum of £1,875 per month. You’ll then have to cover 20% of your employee’s wage to a maximum of £625 per month. You’ll also be required to keep paying National Insurance and employer pension contributions.
