HMRC publishes guidance on claiming Job Retention Bonus

HMRC recently published guidance on the eligibility requirements for the Job Retention Bonus.

From February 2021, employers will be able to claim the Job Retention Bonus through the gov.uk website. The Job Retention Bonus will be a one-off payment of £1,000 to the employer for every eligible employee that is claimed for. The bonus will be taxable, so the business must include the whole amount as income when calculating their taxable profits for corporation tax or self assessment.

The guidance states that an employer will be able to claim the Bonus for any employees that were eligible for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS). Where a claim for an employee was incorrectly made, a Job Retention Bonus will not be payable.

All employers are eligible for the scheme, including recruitment agencies and umbrella companies.

The guidance can be read in full here. HMRC stated that additional guidance on the Job Retention Bonus will be published by the end of September.
