In the 2021 Spring Budget, Rishi Sunak announced that the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, otherwise known as the Furlough Scheme, would be extended from 30 April 2021 to 30 September 2021.
As the scheme winds down, employers will need to contribute to furlough pay:
- From 1st July 2021 employers contribute 10% of the furlough pay
- From 1st August 2021 employers contribute 20% of the furlough pay
To help businesses prepare for the end of the scheme, we’ve put together a comprehensive timeline that details the key action dates regarding the scheme as well as other lockdown reopening dates.
