Changes to furlough from September

Note that for the month of September the Government will reduce the amount of its contribution to employees’ regular pay for hours that they are furloughed to 70% (up to £2,187.50 per employee).  Employers will be required to pay the remaining 10% (up to £312.50) to ensure the employee’s receive at least 80% of their normal wage. It is at the discretion of Employers if they wish to pay above the 80%.

Employers will also need to pay employers national insurance and pension contributions. The government support reduces again to 60% in October, with employers then responsible for 20% to ensure the employee’s receive at least 80% of their normal wage.
