  • Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme - Employer National Insurance and Pension Contributions

    New guidance on Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme has been published.

    In a move that could save businesses additional money each (possibly up to £300) month for each employee under the scheme, the government will now cover the employer national insurance and minimum auto-enrolment pension scheme contributions employers pay on the wages they must pay their furloughed staff – on top of the wages covered under the scheme.
