Changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme from 1st August 2021

Changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme from 1st August 2021

From 1 August 2021, the government will pay 60% of wages up to a maximum cap of £1,875 for the hours the employee is on furlough.
The 60% support will continue until the end of September.

Employers can still choose to top up employees’ wages above the 80% level or cap for each month if they wish, at their own expense.

As September is the final month for the CJRS all claims for September must be submitted by 14th October.

Income Tax Self-Assessment – ITSA

If you currently have rental income or are currently self-employed, with an income from either source in excess of £10k then from April 2023 you will have to make several returns to HMRC throughout the year. In addition, you may also have to complete an Annual Self-Assessment Tax Return.  We Recommend those affected contact us to discuss their situation in order they have sufficient time to practice and prepare for this change.

Are you Employed and working from home?  Are you claiming your working from home allowance?

Are you Employed and working from home?  Are you claiming your working from home allowance?

This is £6 per week tax-free.  HMRC has confirmed that as long as you are required to work from home you can still claim the full years allowance.  If you feel your bills for working from home exceed the £6 per week, we can claim more back but we must provide proof of this.  Please note, it is possible for your employer to pay you this as a tax-free allowance.
