Pound sign

New Job Support Scheme will run for six months from November 2020 until April 2021.

The Scheme will be open to all small and medium businesses with a UK payroll. Large businesses will need to prove that their turnover has decreased as a result of Covid-19.

The scheme will be available to pay for employees:

– employed on or before 23 September 2020,

– working at least 33% of their hours and paid for those as normal.

The Government and the employer will each pay for 1/3 of any hours not worked, allowing the employee to earn at least 77% of their normal wages.

A claim will need to be made by employers. They will be able to access the grant portal from December 2020.

For more details, please see the Government’s policy paper.
