Paying your Employees

Claim for wages through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

You can now only claim if you have previously furloughed your employee before 30 June 2020 and you have submitted a claim for this by 31 July 2020. This may differ if you have an employee returning from statutory parental leave.


Use this online service to claim for your employees’ wages using the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

To use the scheme, the steps you’ll need to take are:

  1. Check if you can claim
  2. Check which employees you can put on furlough
  3. Calculate 80% of your employees’ wages
  4. Claim for your employees’ wages
  5. Report a payment in PAYE Real Time Information
