Administering the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme


We appreciate that you are probably hard at work making the necessary arrangements and sourcing the required information for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) at the moment.

The portal went live this week and can be accessed by clicking here. Initial reports suggest that more than 140,000 businesses have made an application so far.

To help you make sense of the CJRS and the application process, we wanted to share some useful documents and calculators with you:

Step-by-Step Guide 

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has created a useful step-by-step PDF guide to help with the application process, which can be downloaded and followed here.

CJRS claim calculator 

To help calculate your claim and check it, the Government has designed a dedicated calculator. This is useful for calculating a basic regular salaried claim but is not able to calculate complex claims involving TUPE, top-up payments or pension contributions made outside of auto-enrolment, so please be aware. The calculator can be accessed here.

Webinar

HMRC has also created a 25-minute webinar that covers the CJRS basics and how applications can be made. This can be accessed here.

What we are learning from those who are applying for the scheme is that this isn’t a one size fits all process and certain employees or businesses will have requirements that are outside of the usual parameters of the scheme.

You should prepare all of the necessary information for the application beforehand, including calculations for those staff members that have been furloughed to make administering this task easier.
