Everything you need to know about CJRS final calculations


Published: 05 May 2021 Update History

ICAEW’s Tax Faculty is urging employers and agents to attend a free webinar on 7 May outlining how to calculate grant entitlement under the final phase of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, rather than risk under or overclaiming.

Claims under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) are changing from July with employers having to make increasing contributions to cover staff salaries. From 1 July 2021 the grant will be reduced to 70% of salary for hours not worked and from 1 August 2021 it will be reduced again to 60%.

Each employee must though continue to be paid 80% of their reference pay up to the £2,500 cap and for hours worked in accordance with their employment contract. So employers will be paying some salary costs for the furloughed hours, as well as the total cost of all employers' NIC and the auto-enrolled pension contributions.

The calculations required to make an accurate claim are complex and with a penalty regime in place for overclaims it is important for employers and their agents to understand how to make these calculations.

On 7 May at 12:00, ICAEW’s Tax Faculty is hosting a webinar that is free to all which will outline all of the changes and provide practical support on making calculations.

Anita Monteith will be joined by Kate Upcraft, respected tax author, lecturer and consultant, who will be outlining worked examples to illustrate the calculations.
