Furlough Claim Portal Now Open


The HMRC furlough reclaim portal is now live as at 20th April 2020

For clients we prepare payroll for and who have requested that we submit the furlough claim we will do so.

For other clients we will assume you are submitting the claim yourselves.

If you process your own payroll then we will not have HMRC authority to submit the claim and you will need to submit the claim yourself.

The portal is already experiencing a number of technical difficulties already so please bear with us.

The following details are needed from you if we are processing your claim:

  • the sort code of the bank account where you want the claim to be paid into
  • the account number of the account where you want the claim to be paid into
  • the name the bank account is in (usually the business name)
  • the address on your bank statement/account for the above bank details

Can you please provide us with these above details for the claim. Without these details we can not submit the claim.

Once submitted the claim will be checked by HMRC and their aim is pay the claims within 6 days. HMRC will be inundated with claims and queries so it may take longer than this.

Further details on the claim procedure can be found at this link

If you are submitting the claim yourself further help can be found at this link


If you’d like to know how we can help you with this, or with anything else, feel free to phone 01942 734455 or email me at
