HMRC COVID-19 Support: CJRS extension

Date: Thursday 12 November 2020

HMRC has now made the new Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) guidance available on GOV.UK. To check if you’re eligible and to get ready to claim from this week, go to GOV.UK and search 'Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme'.

From Wednesday 11 November is it possible to claim under the CJRS for periods from 1 November. You will need to submit any claims for November by 14 December.

What’s new in the support available?

What you need to do now
Submit any claims for periods up to 31 October on or before 30 November. Claims for periods up to 31 October will not be accepted after 30 November. Claims are subject to eligibility and the rules in force at the time. Search 'Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme' on GOV.UK for full eligibility criteria.

What you need to do for your claims – for periods from 1 November

You will need to keep any records that support the amount of CJRS grant you claim, in case HMRC needs to check them. You can view, print or download copies of your previously submitted claims by logging onto your CJRS service on GOV.UK.

Further support
Thousands of people have viewed, and benefited from, the HMRC live webinars which now offer more support on changes to CJRS, and how they affect you. To book online, or to view updated guidance, go to GOV.UK and search 'help and support if your business is affected by coronavirus'.

HMRC phone lines and webchat remain very busy, so the quickest way to find the support you need is on GOV.UK. This will leave the HMRC phone lines and webchat service open for those who need them most.
