HMRC - Incorrect refusal of Job Retention Scheme financial support
Message via R3
HMRC is aware that some employers’ claims through the Job Retention Scheme (JRS) for financial support have been refused because they are in arrears with tax liabilities. HMRC has clarified that this is incorrect, and these employers should not have had their claims rejected.
HMRC has requested that those employers who have had their claim rejected should re-apply.
HMRC has updated its guidance and taken steps to ensure that there is no repeat of the situation. It also apologises for the distress that this may have caused.
