Furlough scheme changes for September

Employees which are still furloughed as we head into September will continue to receive 80% of their salary, however 10% of this will now be paid by employers.

The government will pay 70% of wages up to a cap of £2,187.50 for the hours the employee is on furlough.

Employers will pay ER NICs and pension contributions and top up employees’ wages to ensure they receive 80% of their wages up to a cap of £2,500, for time they are furloughed.

The furlough scheme ends on October 31.
