New Quick Poll: Checking CJRS Claims

30 April 2021

As the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) is expected to close at the end of September 2021, we know that the next big activity from HMRC will be related to compliance, and checking the accuracy of claims submitted under the scheme.

In recognition of this, The CIPP’s Policy team has launched a new Quick Poll to gauge how many of you – the payroll professionals – have had the capacity to check the claims that you have made, as we appreciate that you have all been particularly busy over the last year.

Additionally, for those that have been able to review their CJRS claims, have any of you identified mistakes? With payroll departments expected to deal with the business-as-usual tasks of ensuring workers were paid both accurately and on time, whilst grappling with the administration of a whole new scheme, it would not be surprising to hear that errors have been made.

The latest Quick Poll will take less than a minute to respond to, and feeds in to invaluable research on the topic of the measures implemented by the Government to support both individuals and businesses through the coronavirus pandemic.

Thank you in advance for your contributions.
