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.
