February CJRS claim deadline reminder

12 March 2021

For any Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) claims for periods in February 2021, employers must submit their claims by Monday‌‌ ‌15‌‌ ‌March.

Employers can claim before, during or after they process their payroll. If they can, however, it is best to make a claim once they are sure of the exact number of hours their employees who they are making a claim for have worked to avoid having to amend their claim later.

Employers can check if they and their employees are eligible and work out how much they can claim using our CJRS calculator and examples.

What employers need to do now:

  • If they haven’t submitted their claim for January but believe that they have a reasonable excuse for missing the deadline of 15 February, check if they can make a late claim
  • Submit any claims for February no later than Monday‌‌ 15‌‌ March
  • Keep records that support the amount of CJRS grants they claim, in case HMRC needs to check them
