The UK Government has announced another extension to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) to support employers struggling to pay employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The furlough support scheme will now remain open until the end of September 2021, with employees receiving 80% of their current salary for hours not worked, up to a maximum of £2,500. Businesses will be asked to contribute 10% to these costs in July and 20% in August and September.
