To Claim from HMRC
How are we doing this calculation?▾
The amount is calculated for the entire claim period. Based on the chosen pay period (weekly or monthly), any subsequent pay days are calculated from the first pay day.
- Example 1: If the chosen claim period is between 1 April 2020 and 10 May 2020, and the first pay day is 30 April with a monthly pay period, the furlough is calculated for the entire month of April plus the allowed grant per day for 1-10 May.
- Example 2: If the chosen claim period is between 1 April 2020 and 17 April 2020, and the first pay day is 3 April with a weekly pay period, the furlough is calculated for the full weeks between 4 April and 17 April, plus the allowed grant per day for 1-3 April.
- The maximum grant amount is £2,500 per month if the pay period is monthly, or £576 per week if the pay period is weekly. If 80% of the gross pay that you enter is greater than the maximum for your pay period, the maximum grant amount will be used.
- Starting September, the government will pay 70% of wages up to a cap of £2,187.50 for the hours the employee is on furlough. And from October, the government will pay 60% of wages up to a cap of £1,875 for the hours the employee is on furlough.
The National Insurance Contribution is calculated from the grant by subtracting the relevant Secondary Threshold, and multiplying by 13.8%.
- 2019 to 2020 (£166 per week, £719 per month)
- 2020 to 2021 (£169 per week, £732 per month)
- Threshold value
- The employer pension contribution is calculated at 3% of the earnings over the minimum qualified earnings, which was £512 before 6th April 2020 and £520 after 6th April 2020.
- If the claim start date and end date falls in the middle of a pay period, then the NIC and Pension contribution are calculated on a prorated basis.
- Starting August, the Employer should pay for the National Insurance and Pension Contribution.
Frequently Asked Questions
A collective agreement reached between an employer and a trade union is also acceptable for the claim. There needs to be a written record, but the employee does not have to provide a written response. A record of this communication must be kept for five years.
