The announcement on 29 May provided the key information required for firms to make decisions about furloughing employees. Full information on how the scheme will change from 1 July has been available in published factsheets since the Chancellor announced the changes.

The guidance was updated on 12 June only to provide additional detail on how the scheme will operate in practice.
