CJRS extended to 30 April 2021

In a partial repeat of the announcement made by the Chancellor on 5 November 2020, the government has announced extensions to the furlough scheme and three of its business loan schemes:

  • The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) has been extended by a further month to 30 April 2021. The furlough scheme will continue to pay 80% of wages up to £2,500 for the hours that furloughed or flexi-furloughed employees don’t work. Employers will pay employer National Insurance Contributions and pension contributions.
  • As a consequence, the Job Support Scheme has been deferred to start on 1 May 2021, from 1 April 2021.
  • Application deadlines for the Bounce Back Loan Scheme, Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme and Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme have been extended by a further two months to the end of March 2021.
