Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme grants have been returned to HMRC where the employer no longer needs the grant, or has realised they have made an error, and have followed the guidance on putting things right. Between 17 September and 13 October 2020, a total of £27,933,329 has been returned to HMRC voluntarily, via payment and adjustment to claims. This is in addition to the £215,756,121 that had been returned in the period up to 15 September 2020.
