Upcoming deadlines for VAT deferral and furloughing employees

A reminder of the latest deadlines about the financial support schemes available to help you, as part of the UK Government’s Plan for Jobs.

18 June 2021

This includes:

1.    VAT deferral – final chance to join online
The 21 June deadline for joining the online VAT deferral new payment scheme
The VAT deferral new payment scheme is open for all businesses who deferred paying VAT  due between 20 March and 30 June 2020, and were unable to pay in full by 31 March 2021.

2.    Submit your CJRS claims for June 
A reminder of the 14 July deadline for submitting your June Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) claims.
CJRS claims for periods in June can now be submitted and must be made by Wednesday 14 July.
You can claim 80% of your furloughed employees’ usual wages for the hours not worked, up to a cap of £2,500 per month.

3.    Changes to the CJRS from July 
You must pay the associated employee tax and National Insurance contributions to HMRC. This is a condition of claiming the grant, and not doing so will mean you’ll need to repay the whole of the CJRS grant and you may not be able to claim future CJRS grants.
