Who me? 26th January Deadline

Monday 18th January 2021

From 26 January 2021 businesses that claim furlough payments from HMRC will have their names published.

Employers can submit requests that details of their claims under the scheme are not published.

Claim details will not be published where employers are able to show and provide evidence that doing so would result in serious risk of violence or intimidation to certain relevant individuals (including individual employers, directors, officers or employees) or anyone living with them.

Employers will need to provide HMRC with their:

Employer Government Gateway user ID and password.
Employer PAYE reference number.
Business name.
Contact details.

Evidence in support of their application. No details are given as to what may be suitable evidence but police incident numbers would logically be relevant or copies of threats received.

The request must be made by the employer and cannot be made by an agent on the employer’s behalf. Only one application needs to be made and will apply for all claim periods from 01 December 2020 onwards.

As the first publications will be on 26 January 2021 employers will have to submit their applications quickly
