CIPP webcast: Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) and Self-Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) update

05 June 2020

The CIPP’s Policy and Research team has created a new webcast to update payroll professionals on recent announcements relating to the future of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) and the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS).

The CJRS is due to change from July 2020, and employers will have the option to bring employees back to work on a part-time basis whilst still claiming through the grant for hours not worked. There will be a tapered approach to the level of government funding under the scheme, until it finally closes at the end of October 2020. Further guidance is due to be published on 12 June 2020 but the webcast provides detail surrounding what we know to be true at the point of broadcast (5 June 2020).

Rishi Sunak also announced that there will be a second and final grant available under the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) and the webcast also discusses this.

In order to ensure you are as up to date as possible with future developments relating to the CJRS and the SEISS, don’t delay and listen to the CIPP’s webcast today.
