From 1st July 2021, the Government’s Furlough Grant Scheme reduces from 80% to 70% of furloughed employees’ wage costs for their unworked hours, at a cap of £2187.50. Pay for furloughed employees must remain at a minimum of 80% at a cap of £2500 which means that employers will now begin to contribute 10% up to £312.50 from their own pocket. Further changes continue into August.
