Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – HMRC Online Portal

20th April 2020

Earlier this week, HMRC reached out to their ‘customers’ to inform them about the information which will be required for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme online portal, due to be open from 20th April 2020.

 

The online portal will allow employers to submit information to HM Revenue & Customs about furloughed workers in order to make their ‘claim’.

 

HMRC have stated that the information required to submit the claim for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme includes the following:

 

  1. The bank account number and sort code you’d like to use for receiving your claim.
  2. Your Government Gateway ID and Password.
  3. The name and phone number of the person in your business for HMRC to call with any questions.
  4. Your Self-Assessment UTR (Unique Tax Reference), Company UTR or CRN (Company Registration Number).
  5. The name, employee number (optional) and National Insurance number, claim period and claim amount for each of your furloughed employees.
  6. The total amount being claimed for all employees and the total furlough period.

 

At Whiting & Partners we are doing everything we can to ease the burden you and your business are under during these worrying and uncertain times. If you would like to speak to someone about the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, or any other worries you are having about your business, please reach out to your usual Whiting & Partners contact.
