Further details on the Government’s Furlough Scheme have been announced

 

The scheme was originally launched on 20th March and was published on Gov.UK on 26th March, with further updates following on multiple times throughout April and May.  The scheme opened for the first entries on 20th April, with payments being made typically within 6 working days (according to HMRC).  On 12th May, Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the scheme will now run until the end of October 2020.  Here are some key headlines in respect of the scheme:
