HMRC do not hold full data on which organisations have been supported by the public purse and are therefore unable to answer the questions submitted.

The latest published figures for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme are set out below for information.

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme launched on 20 April 2020.

By midnight on 9 August :

• £34,700,000,000 has been claimed.

• 1,200,000* of employers are furloughing.

• 9,600,000** jobs furloughed.

*This is calculated by counting the number of CJRS claims from distinct PAYE schemes on employer reference (where the PAYE scheme reference is a proxy for a single employer)

**This is calculated as the sum of the maximum number of employments furloughed by any PAYE scheme across all claims by that scheme.
