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.
