As office holders, salaried company directors are eligible to be furloughed and receive support through this scheme.

Directors paid annually are eligible to claim, as long as they meet the relevant conditions. These include being notified to HMRC on an RTI submission on or before 19 March 2020 which relates to a payment of earnings in the 2019/20 tax year.

This requirement is important in order to protect taxpayers’ money from fraudulent claims.
