Furlough 2021

12 March 2021

In March the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, announced the government furlough scheme will be extended until September 2021.



The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme was introduced in March 2020 and has protected over 11 million jobs by paying 80% of employees’ wages for the time they cannot work due to the pandemic.

This lifeline for many was due to end in April 2021 causing uncertainty for many, including the millions of self-employed people affected by the pandemic.


Help for the Self-Employed

The government also announced it is extending its support for self-employed people, relaxing access to grants meaning an additional 600,000 more people will be eligible.

A further 2 grants will be available covering trade from February – April and May – September 2021. To find out more about the governments support for Self-Employed people visit the Budget pages of the gov.uk website. We also offer loans for self-employed people if you find yourself in need.


Re-opening the Economy

As the Job Retention Scheme continues, companies will be expected to begin contributing towards employees’ wages later in the year as the economy begins to reopen.

There has also been a large tranche of funds made available for the “Culture Recovery Fund” to enable museums and other community cultural projects, pubs, sports clubs in danger of going out of business to begin to reopen throughout the summer.

This is estimated to provide help for around 700,000 jobs.
