Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) claim deadline – 14 October 2021

13 October 2021

Following the closure of the CJRS, claims for September 2021 must be made by no later than 11:59pm on 14 October 2021. Amendments to September claims already submitted can be made until 28 October 2021. No further claims can be started or amended after these dates.

The level of government contribution for September is 60% of a worker’s usual earnings, up to £1,875, with an employer contribution of 20%, up to £625. This ensures the 80% of total pay guaranteed to workers under the CJRS.

The CJRS was first announced on 20 March 2020 to support both employers and individuals through the turbulence caused by the outbreak of coronavirus. After multiple extensions, the scheme finally closed on 30 September 2021.
