Furlough terms change for employers

Published:  01 July, 2021

Garages and all other businesses still accessing the furlough scheme to pay staff are required to begin contributing from today (Thursday 1 July).

While employees will still receive 80% of their usual pay, the government will now only play 70%, with the employer required to put in the final 10%, up to a total of £2,500 per month.

Then, in August and September, the government’s portion will drop to 60%, with businesses then expected to pay 20%, still up to the £2,500 limit. Employers were already required to continue paying pension and National Insurance contributions as part of the arrangement.

As it stands, the furlough is due to expire on 30 September, although it has been extended four times already.
