Important Announcement For Our Clients and Partners: COVID-19 Queries

April 22, 2020

Please note that on Friday 17.04.20 HMRC issued new guidance on how to calculate the ER NIC and ER Pen for part month furlough.

If you have used one of our calculators, they will be correct for full month calculations but not for part month. Original guidance stated that whole allowances would be applied to the furlough amount but updated guidance now states it can be pro-rata’d. This is good news for employers as it means your overall claim can be higher than previously calculated. Please use the HMRC calculator available here for your part month furlough employees:

For clients submitting payroll information:

Our calculations of the Furloughed Pay amounts are based on our understanding of the guidance provided on the HMRC website, please be advised that we cannot guarantee that your Furlough Claims would be successful, for further guidance, please contact HMRC or ACAS.

We understand this is a difficult time, so from all of our team, we would like to assure you of our dedication to great service delivery, and wish our clients a safe and healthy time during this lockdown period.
