Job Support Scheme

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.
