Payroll Update - 23rd March 2020

The government has announced that it will help employers pay their employee’s wages in these difficult times.

  • Employers can claim 80% of employee’s wages, up to the value of £2500.00 per month.
  • This can be backdated to 1st March 2020.
  • This is expected to be available for 3 months.
  • Auto enrolment pension obligations will continue, which will involve a minimum employer pension contribution having to be paid in relation to the furloughed workers but based on the pay they actually receive during that period.
  • There will be a portal where the information of the employees will need to be input.
  • You will need to inform designated employee’s they are now classed as ‘Furlough Employee’, this would need updating on their employment contracts
  • SSP is to be paid from day 1 of absence if they are absent due to Covid-19.

Having spoken to the HMRC on 23/03/2020, they are working on the portal required, but are unsure now when this will be available.
