COVID-19 Update 28th May 2021

New CJRS Form

A new template has been developed for businesses that have between 16 and 99 people on furlough. If you’re claiming for 16 to 99 employees on or after 27 May 2021, you’ll need to use this template to upload a file containing the following information for each employee:

  • full name
  • National Insurance number (or payroll reference number if you do not have this)
  • payroll reference number (sometimes called a pay identify or staff number)
  • furlough start and end date (using the format DD/MM/YYYY)
  • full amount claimed (pounds and pence)
  • normal hours (using decimals, for example 7.5)
  • actual hours worked (using decimals)
  • furloughed hours (using decimals)
  • if they have returned from statutory leave and you then put them on furlough


Correcting CJRS Claims

Staying with CJRS, there is an update to the guidance on paying back grants with information on how to correct overclaims. The steps to follow are:

    • Work out your claim amount as normal. If you submit using a file, do not provide details of the overclaim in that month’s claim file. The file should show the amount of the claim for the employees being claimed for without any offset for the overclaim.
    • Work out your overclaim amount.
    • Deduct the amount you’ve overclaimed (step 2) from your claim amount (step 1).
    • Enter the result in the ‘claim amount’ box on your claim form.
    • Enter the amount you’ve overclaimed in the ‘overclaim’ box on your claim form.
