Extension to the COVID-19 Job Retention Scheme (CJRS)

The Chancellor has extended the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme by one month to the end of June 2020. The announcement can be found here. Further information will be provided once the Government announces its intentions for the scheme beyond  30 June 2020.

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme opened on Monday 20 April 2020 for claims. The official step by step guide for Employers from HM Revenue and Customs can be found here. The full guidance for Financial Support for education, support for education, Early Years and Children’s Social Care can be found here.

The Early Years and Childcare Service have produced a template for Ofsted registered early years providers and School Nursery Class providers to use, which will assist with calculating the percentage of their income that is derived from delivery of fee paying services, and therefore the % of their payroll that can be furloughed.

Please contact the Early Years Finance and Business Manager at FEEEprovision@walthamforest.gov.uk if you require assistance in completing this template.
