The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (also known as the furlough scheme) has been extended until the end of March 2021, delaying the start of the Job Support Scheme. Under the furlough scheme extension, the government will pay up to 80% of an employee’s normal pay, capped at £2,500 and employers will be responsible for NICs and pension contributions. Employees can also work part-time under flexible-furlough and receive a furlough grant for any hours not worked.
