Employers claiming furlough to be published by HMRC

HMRC will be publishing the names of employers who claim furlough payments under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme for periods on or after 1 December 2020.

The Government will publish the information listed below on GOV.UK:

  • the employer name
  • an indication of the value of the claim within a banded range
  • the company number for companies and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs)

The banded ranges are:

  • £1 to £10,000
  • £10,001 to £25,000
  • £25,001 to £50,000
  • £50,001 to 100,000
  • £100,001 to £250,000
  • £250,001 to £500,000
  • £500,001 to £1,000,000
  • £1,000,001 to £2,500,000
  • £2,500,001 to £5,000,000
  • £5,000,001 to £10,000,000
  • £10,000,001 to £25,000,000
  • £25,000,001 to £50,000,000
  • £50,000,001 to £100,000,000
  • £100,000,001 and above

Employees will also have access to increased information in relation to the monies they receive via the furlough scheme. Employees will have access to details relating claim periods starting on or after 1 December 2020 in their Personal Tax Account on GOV.UK

Employer details will not be published by HMRC if it can be shown that publication of information would result in a serious risk of violence or intimidation to certain relevant individuals, or any individual living with them.

HMRC are making steps to discourage or find fraudulent claims. If you are concerned about ensuring furlough compliance get in touch get in touch.
