On the 20 April, the Government launched the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme at 8am. By midnight they had received:

• 185,000 claims
• Covering 1,300,000 employees
• At a value of £1,500,000,000

For employers to get their payments by 30 April they need to make a claim by midnight today (Wednesday 22 April) as it takes 6 working days to process claims.  Further guidance is available and there is an easy to use, step-by-step guide that takes you through the process.
