THE CJRS CLAIMS PROCESS
How do I apply for the support?
The initial guidance suggested that very little information was required. Perhaps given the change in attitude towards the prospect of fraudulent claims, this has been significantly increased and the Government has now said to claim, you will need:
Your employer PAYE reference number
The number of employees being furloughed
National Insurance Numbers for the employees you want to furlough
Names of the employees you want to furlough
Payroll/works number for the employees you want to furlough (optional)
Your Self-Assessment Unique Taxpayer Reference or Corporation Tax Unique Taxpayer
Reference or Company Registration Number
The claim period (start and end date)
Amount claimed per employee (per the minimum length of furloughing of 3 consecutive weeks)
Your UK bank account number, sort code and account holder name
You will need to calculate the amount you are claiming.
For smaller employers (less than 100 employees) this information must be keyed into the portal.
Employers with more than 100 employees will be able to upload a file with this information.
Your calculations must be retained for 5 years and made available to HMRC on request.
