The Government expects the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme to be in place by the end of April, including a new online portal through which businesses can access the Scheme.

The Scheme is a significant programme of work, and one of many Coronavirus-related changes and programmes that are being implemented at present. Nonetheless, HM Revenue and Customs are working at pace to allow the Scheme to be up and running.

Guidance for employers and employees has already been published on GOV.UK.
