A CJRS Claim Report was released on the 23rd April in BrightPay to assist users in ascertaining the amounts needed for input into HMRC's Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme online service.
BrightPay’s CJRS Claim Report includes claim amounts for each employee detailing furlough start date, furlough end date (if known), gross pay claim, employer NIC claim, employer pension claim and the total claim amount.
Employers will need to make a claim for wage costs through an online portal on GOV.UK, which was launched on 20th April. The only way to make a claim is online. HMRC has worked to make the portal simple to use and any support you need is available on GOV.UK. Businesses will need their Government Gateway user ID and password to login to the online portal.
You’ll need to provide the following to make a claim:
If you have fewer than 100 furloughed staff, you will need to input your information directly into the system for each employee.
If you are an employer with more than 100 employees, you will need to upload a file with additional information for each employee, including the claim amount per furloughed employee and the furlough start and end date (if known) for each furloughed employee. If you have more than 100 employees, BrightPay gives users the option to create a CSV file, ready to be uploaded into HMRC's online service containing the details of your claim.
