Can I Claim the Job Retention Bonus?
All employers can claim the Job Retention Bonus (JRB) for any eligible employee.
You should ensure that you have:
- complied with your obligations to pay and file PAYE accurately and on time under the Real Time Information (RTI) reporting system for all employees
- maintained enrolment for PAYE online
- a UK bank account
You must keep your payroll up to date and accurate, and address all requests from HMRC to provide missing employee data in respect of historic Job Retention Scheme (JRS) claims.
Failure to maintain accurate records may jeopardise an your claim.
HMRC will withhold payment of the JRB where it believes there is a risk that JRS claims may have been fraudulently claimed or inflated, until the enquiry is completed.
We will keep our blog on how to make a claim for the job retention bonus updated, so please keep checking back.
