On the 30th September the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), also known as the furlough scheme, came to an end. Employers are able to claim for their employee’s wages if they have been furloughed due to COVID-19 until 14th October.
If you happen to miss the claim deadline, HRMC may accept late claims if you have a reasonable excuse, taken reasonable care to try and claim on time or have claimed without delay as soon as you were able to do so.
14th October 2021 – Last day to submit CJRS claims for September 2021.
28th October 2021 – Last day to make any amends to a CJRS claim for September 2021.
