Changes to CJRS for August and September 2021

CJRS claims for August can now be submitted and must be made by Tuesday‌‌ ‌14‌‌ ‌September.

For August and September, employers can claim 60% of furloughed employees’ usual wages for the hours not worked, up to a cap of £1,875 per month. Employers will need to contribute 20% from their own funds so that furloughed employees’ are paid at least 80% of their usual wages in total for the hours they do not work (up to a cap of £2,500 a month).

September will be the last month of the CJRS and employers must prepare for the scheme closing on 30 September.

Employers will need to ensure they keep records supporting the grants claimed, in case HMRC need to check them. Employers should continue paying CJRS-related employee tax and National Insurance contributions to HMRC, and contact HMRC if struggling to pay.
