September is the last month for CJRS “Furlough” grants
The Government are pulling the plug on support to employers for furloughed staff at the end of September as they anticipate that the economy will be back to normal by October. The grant claims for employees furloughed in the month of September are 60% of the employee’s usual pay up to a maximum cap of £1,875.
Make sure that you make your final claims for the month of September by 14 October and make any adjustments by 28 October 2021.
The end of furlough may be the trigger for many businesses to assess their staffing levels going forward and many may be considering making the tough decision about which staff to make redundant.
