6. Job Retention Scheme

Under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, all UK employers with a PAYE scheme will be able to access support to continue paying part of their employees’ salary (including National Insurance contributions and employer pension contributions) for those that would otherwise have been laid off during this crisis.

The scheme will cover the cost of wages backdated to 1 March 2020.
