Details for claiming under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

April 14th 2020

Last week we produced Updated Guidance on the Job Retention Scheme and highlighted that the current timing is for the site to be live on Monday 20th April (next Monday).

If your business is making a claim you will need to have access to your PAYE records via your Government Gateway login to make the claim.

–  If you are unsure, you can login to your Gateway account and look for a PAYE section.
–  If it is there, further details about how to make the claim will be available nearer the ‘go live’ date.
–  If it is not there, you will need to follow either a link on the website to add your PAYE, or click the button to ‘add extra services’.
–  HMRC will then send you a code to enter to add the PAYE details to your account.

Please note – The code can take a few days to arrive so please act now if you need to make a claim next week.

If you are already a JRW payroll client we should already have access to your Gateway account to help make the claim, but please confirm if you want us to.  If you don’t already have access yourself now would be a good time to add it anyway.

If you prepare your own payroll but think you may need our assistance then you will definitely need to ensure you have access through your own login.

Of course JRW are here to help all our clients and businesses in any way that we can, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
