To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps he is taking to enable umbrella companies to apply for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
Any employer can apply for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, providing they have created and started a PAYE payroll scheme on or before 19 March 2020; have enrolled for PAYE online; and have a UK bank account.
Any entity with a UK payroll can apply, including businesses, charities, recruitment agencies and public authorities. If an umbrella company meets these eligibility criteria, they are eligible to apply for the scheme.
