Coronavirus Job Retention Claim Formsby Computare on 04/20/20
A quick update to say that Paytec has received approximately 25% of all client CJRS claim forms over the weekend and that we have trained the team this morning on the computations needed for claiming 80% pay, National Insurance and employers pension contributions. It hasn't been straightforward because March is in most cases a part month calculation, which includes normal pay before furloughing. We have also had a run through the operation of the HMRC claim portal. And as you would expect it crashed mid claim due to the pressure on the system.
We are pleased to say that we have completed some claims and the remainder will be filtering through over the coming week. One obvious point is that we need to run and calculate the April monthly payroll to ensure that the claim being made ties in with the actual payroll figures associated with the month.
Please bear with us. We are a small team and the CJRS presents us with an unexpectedly high workload. If we need any further information then we will be in contact.
