Guidance for employers on the coronavirus (COVID-19) Job Retention Scheme.

HMRC have now issued guidance on what can be claimed through the Job Retention.


Our team have been in touch with HMRC this morning (via their web chat).
The advisors have recommended that where our clients have a Direct Debit set up and wish to take advantage of the VAT deferral, they should instruct their bank to cancel the Direct Debit rather than expect HMRC to not collect the payments during the deferral period.

The deferral applies to payments due between 20 March and 30 June (this covers VAT quarters Feb 20 to April 20 only).

May VAT returns will need to be paid by 7 July.

Please Note: If you have a limited company you are not self employed
If you are struggling to file Accounts caused by the impact of COVID-19 you can apply for a 3-month extension.

You must apply to Companies House for the extension. If you do not apply for an extension and your accounts are filed late, an automatic penalty will be imposed.
