As the COVID-19 situation evolves across the country on a daily basis, the rules underpinning Government support to employers changes at regular intervals. The Job Support Scheme, being the replacement for the Job Retention Scheme, was originally due to commence on 1 November 2020 and last fox six months. 

This commencement date has been postponed until at least when the Extended Job Retention Scheme ends, which following the Chancellor’s announcement on 5 November 2020, is expected to be 31 March 2021.

If you need help or further information please contact our Employment Taxes Team on or speak to your usual PEM contact.
