Overview of the measures

 

Employers and employees

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

  • Employers may claim a grant of up to 80% of past salaries of employees who would have been laid off during this crisis. This is subject to a cap of £2,500 per month.
  • Employers must designate affected employees as ‘furloughed workers' and notify the employees of this change. 
  • To qualify for this scheme: workers should not undertake work while furloughed. 

See Employer guide to the Job Retention Scheme

COVID-19: issues for directors and shareholders

  • Furloughing does not need not cover director's statutory duties.
  • Company law wrongful trading provisions are suspended.
  • Salary for furloughing is based on past salary payments made via the payroll.

See COVID-19: Company Directors & Shareholders

COVID-19 Homeworking guidance

  • Special tax exemption for reimbursed employee equipment - added 18/5
  • Announced by the Financial Secretary to the Treasury on 13 May 2020:
  • A temporary tax exemption and National Insurance disregard will come into effect to ensure that the expense of the purchase home office equipment as a result of the coronavirus outbreak will not attract tax and NICs liabilities where reimbursed by the employer. Certain conditions apply.

See COVID-19: Working from home

Statutory Sick Pay (SSP)

  • SSP is paid to eligible employees by their employers.
  • SSP is not available to those earning below the Lower Earnings Limit of £118 per week (£120 per week from 6 April), see Sick Pay (below).

The government said that it will bring forward legislation to allow small and medium-sized businesses and employers to reclaim SSP paid for sickness absence due to COVID-19. The eligibility criteria for the scheme will be as follows:

  • SSP will be payable from day one instead of day four for affected individuals. 
    • HMRC's SSP calculator does not appear to have been yet updated.
  • SMEs may reclaim up to two weeks’ SSP expenditure per eligible employee who has been off work because of COVID-19.
  • The rate of SSP, for working a five-day week is £95.85 per week from 6 April 2020 (£94.25 to 5 April 2020).

Key essentials for employers

  • An SME is an employer with fewer than 250 employees, The size of an employer will be determined by the number of people they employed as of 28 February 2020.
  • Employers should maintain records of staff absences and payments of SSP.
  • Employees will not need to provide a GP fit note.
    • People who are advised to self-isolate for COVID-19 can obtain an alternative to the fit note to cover this by contacting NHS 111, or online at Get an isolation note - NHS.
    • This can be used by employees where their employers require evidence.
    • Further details will be confirmed shortly.
  • The eligible period for the scheme commenced on 13 March 2020 as the day after the regulations on the extension of Statutory Sick Pay to those staying at home/self-isolating in line with public health guidance came into force. Anyone self-isolating before that date will only be eligible for SSP from day four.
  • For individuals shielding for 12 weeks after receiving a letter from the NHS or their GP, SSP starts from the first qualifying day on or after 16 April 2020.

The online system for making an SSP reclaim will be available from 26 May 2020 through PAYE online. Where employers use an agent who is authorised to do PAYE online for them, the agent can make a claim on their behalf.

See Check if you can claim back Statutory Sick Pay paid to employees due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Off-Payroll Working & SSP

  • Following the government's announcement to postpone the introduction of the Off-Payroll Working rules to the private sector, all workers providing their labour via their own Personal Service Companies (PSCs) to private sector end clients, will be entitled, as they are currently in 2019-20 above to claim SSP under the current rules, via their own PSC.
  • The extension of the Off-Payroll Working rules was due to commence on 6 April 2020. The start date will now be deferred to 6 April 2021.

    • A contributory Employment and Support Allowance will be payable, at a rate of £73.10 a week if you are over 25. This may be claimed by eligible people affected by COVID-19 or self-isolating in line with advice from Day one of sickness, rather than Day eight.

VAT

VAT payments may be deferred for three months. 

A payment deferral applies from 20 March 2020 to 30 June 2020 for VAT registered business.

I am trying to apply for the CBILS with HSBC. I’ve been on hold for 5 hours over 4 calls and then told it will be a 2 day wait for a call back about a loan application.

The application itself is 1 hour long and requires a business plan/forecasting etc.

Has anyone applied with a different bank with a more reasonable application process?

@Ewart, those were tabled amendments to the bill (which was passed as an Act on Wednesday). I have been trying to track what happened to some of the amendments, including clause 12, because Hansard seems to say that they were agreed and ordered to stand as part of the Bill in its third reading the the Commons on Monday, but then there is no further trace of them in the Bill as is was presented in the Lords.

A similar amendment in respect of the self-employed was proposed in the Lords, and after debate it was withdrawn on the back of a promise that the Chancellor would annouce something soon.

Has anybody attempted to apply for the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) yet?

I have several clients who are potentially interested, but I have heard bad reports in the media that the banks are being unreasonable - eg demanding personal guarantees over the 20% of the loan that isn't backed by the government.

Also, what level of proposal is required. If the banks are expecting a full business plan, with detailed forecasts, plainly this is not going to be achievable for multiple clients all wanting to apply for loans at the same time - whilst we are trying to keep on top of everything else for all of our clients.

Any feedback of experience so far would be greatly appreciated, so that I know what to expect.

One of my clients is applying for one. They haven't mentioned to me about a personal guarantee being requested.

The application form looks very straightforward. My client is not being asked to provide a business plan or forecasting. Neither of these could be considered very reliable at the moment as they have no idea when they will be able to re-open for business.

Directors are employees for tax purposes: they claim SSP off their company.
