8. Detailed guidance for the Job Retention Scheme (Furlough Scheme) from 1st November 2020.

You are able to apply to CJRS online  for periods from 1 ‌November. You will need to submit any claims for November by 14‌‌ ‌December.

The new updates to the support are: -

CJRS has been extended to 31 ‌March 2021 for all parts of the UK. From 1 November, the UK Government will pay 80% of employees’ usual wages for the hours not worked, up to a cap of £2,500 per month. This will be reviewed in January.
You and your employees do not need to have benefited from the scheme before to claim for periods from 1 November. See here  for the full eligibility criteria.
HMRC intends to publish details of employers who use the scheme for claim periods from December, and employees will be able to find out if their employer has claimed for them under the scheme.
There are now monthly deadlines for claims. Claims for periods starting on/after 1 November must be submitted within 14 calendar days after the month they relate to, unless this falls on a weekend in which case the deadline is the next weekday.
The Job Retention Bonus will no longer be paid in February‌‌‌ ‌2021 and an alternative retention incentive will be put in place at the appropriate time.
The launch of the Job Support Scheme has also been postponed.

Important you must submit any claims for periods up to 31 October on or before 30‌‌‌ ‌November. Claims for periods up to 31 October will not be accepted after 30‌‌‌ ‌November.
What you need to do now for your claims for periods from 1 November
