New Quick Poll: Process changes due to eligibility criteria for the Job Retention Bonus

27 August 2020

In the final of a series of Quick Poll questions that ask about the Job Retention Bonus, the CIPP’s Policy and Research team wanted to establish whether or not businesses have had to alter their processes in any way to ensure they meet the eligibility criteria for the Job Retention Bonus.

HMRC has made it clear that, in order to qualify for the Job Retention Bonus, businesses must ensure that all employee records are up-to-date and accurate, with particular emphasis on the correct employee details and wages being reported to HMRC via Full Payment Submissions (FPS). The guidance page on the bonus also makes reference to the fact that employers should check that all claims made under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) have been submitted correctly, with any amendments being reported to HMRC.

The Quick Poll sits within the CIPP’s News Online page, and will take less than a minute to respond to. We know how busy you all are, so we really appreciate the feedback that we receive. Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer the latest Quick Poll.
