Update 3rd Nov 2020
On Sunday 1st November the Government’s announced the extension to the Furlough scheme, here we will discuss how we will be supporting you.
What are the latest changes?
The Furlough scheme has been extended. The rules for Furlough claims will be the same as those processed in August:
- The Government will pay 80% of wages up to a cap of £2,500 for the hours an employee is on furlough
- Employers will pay ER NICs and pension contributions for the hours the employee is on furlough
What is IRIS doing to help?
In August we introduced functionality which enabled the processing of flexible Furlough changes, via a spreadsheet. We are currently making changes to the spreadsheet to enable continued claims. This will be incorporated into an update for 12Pay which we will make available as soon as possible.
We are also creating new guides to reflect the latest guidance and any required system changes. We will make the new guides available on this KB as soon as possible.
We will be keeping you informed when the changes are available, on this KB and via the software message system.
My company is in Scotland/Wales can we still claim Furlough?
Yes, the Furlough scheme has been extended nationally.
Can I still use flexible Furlough?
