Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) closes on 30th June

Any employer, who wishes to furlough their staff, will need to do so by the 10th June at the latest. The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) closes to new entrants on the 30th June and from this date, employers will only be able to furlough staff that have been furloughed for a full three week period before the 30th June.

Furloughed employees able to work part time from 1st July

One month earlier than previously announced, from the 1st July, employers will be able to bring their staff back to work on a part-time basis. The employer will be responsible for their employees’ wages for the hours worked whilst the CJRS grant will pay for the normal hours not worked.

Tapering CJRS grants from 1st August

From the 1st of August the CJRS grants will be tapered, decreasing the contribution from the government and increasing the contribution by the employer as outlined in the table below.

"My company has used DRG for a number of years. They are proactive and efficient with all aspects of their work. They keep on top of our tax and accounting requirements, and help with the development of our business strategy.

We view DRG as a key supplier and crucially a partner and would highly recommend the firm – in particular to other fast growing businesses."

David Folkman, Director

"I’ve worked with a number of accountants over the years and have never found another company who offers the same level of care, support and professionalism. They’re always on hand to offer advice and guidance, above and beyond the service that I pay for. I would recommend them wholeheartedly."

Joe Hill, Director

Outdoor Academy

"I have always worked as an employee so when I decided to set up my own business, I did not know where to start. DRG took the time to explain how working as a sole trader would be more beneficial to me setting up a limited company (which I had always thought was a requirement for running a business). They gave me practical advice on the records I need to keep as well as general guidance on setting up my business and helped me claim a large tax refund after my first year of trading."

Sole Trader

"I have been a client through a number of different ventures with DRG since 2007. They have proved the benefits of a local firm with Big 4 experience in providing sound business and tax advice by being accessible, having in-depth knowledge of my business and able to form good working relationships at different levels with me and my staff. We also enjoy the benefit of their excellent accountancy and payroll services. I couldn’t recommend them more highly."
