Job Support Scheme

The Job Support Scheme is designed to protect viable jobs in businesses who are facing lower demand over the winter months due to Covid-19. This is designed to help keep their employees attached to the workforce. The scheme will open on 1 November 2020 and run for 6 months.

As claims for this scheme are for complete months, the claim period will begin in December 2020.

Preparing for the Job Support Scheme

To help you prepare your JSS claim accurately, we anticipate that it will be important for you to identify the pay element(s) used to make Job Support Scheme payments.

Currently, we have no guidance from HMRC to explain the claim calculation process, or what information will be required to make a JSS claim.

We would therefore advise you to create separate pay elements for JSS and/or JSS Expansion payments so that any software changes will be able to identify the payments later.

For more details on the JSS and for help preparing for claims, please refer to the following payroll guide:

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

HMRC have made further changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. We have added
further functionality to the software to assist you with the changes. The changes include up and
coming reductions to the reclaim values. Please see documents below for details.
