The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) guidance has been updated Thursday 27th May 2021 to include:
- The introduction of a new template, enabling employers to upload information in for 16 to 99 employees in a claim. The change was not as simple as amending the existing template for 100 or more employees – the existing process will continue as is, allowing employers to choose from 4 different format types. The new 16 to 99 template removes the choice of format and has an extra validation step in cases where there are no NINO’s. HMRC have introduced an extra page so that the employer can choose which template they need to use.
- A new paragraph has been added to explain to employers how to pay back an overpayment in the following claim. This is to prevent employers from using negative values in their claims.
