HMRC Furlough Claim Portal Open from 20 April
A standalone web portal will be introduced by 20th April in order to submit furlough claims for your employees.
Details needed are
- your ePAYE reference number
- the number of employees being
- the claim period (start and end
- amount claimed (per the minimum
length of furloughing of 3 consecutive weeks)
- your bank account number and
- your contact name
- your phone number
You will need to calculate the amount you are claiming. HMRC will retain the right to retrospectively audit all aspects of
your claim to uncover fraud.
It isn’t clear if you need to make the claim or if your accountant can make the claim on your behalf.
