We have now provided some clarifications on some of the queries that we have received, including:

  • More detail on eligible employers, including on companies in administration;
  • Confirming the eligibility for different types of employment relationships, including company directors, salaried members of limited liability partnerships and agency workers.
  • Confirming the position of individuals with caring responsibilities.
  • What is included in an employee’s ‘regular wages’, including clarification around benefits in kind.
