CIPP Webcast: Summer Economic Statement 2020

23 July 2020

The CIPP’s Policy and Research team have created a brand new webcast, which provides an overview of the measures announced by Rishi Sunak in his Summer Economic Statement 2020, intended to kickstart the UK’s economy after the turbulence and uncertainty caused by the outbreak of coronavirus.

With primary focus placed on the elements that will impact the roles of payroll professionals, the webcast covers details of the Job Retention Bonus, the Kickstart Scheme and the government’s plans for boosting worksearch, skills and apprenticeships. This is in addition to a more general overview of the other measures announced by the Chancellor.

The webcast also examines the role of payroll throughout the duration of the pandemic, and how payroll professionals have worked tirelessly to ensure that the UK has been paid, both correctly and on time. This could have implications for the future, and raise the profile of the profession, ensuring that payroll secures its place at board level and strategic meetings within businesses.
