HMRC’s guidance on making claims through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme was updated on 19 November 2020. The updated guidance now includes various examples of what is meant by a ‘reasonable excuse’ for employers that submit furlough claims after the stated deadline. Claims for the periods from 1 July 2020 to 31 October 2020 must be submitted no later than 30 November 2020.
From 1 November 2020, claims must be submitted by 11.59pm 14 calendar days after the end of the previous calendar month. If a claim deadline falls on the weekend or a bank holiday then claims should be submitted on the next working day. For example, the claim deadline for furlough days during November must be submitted by 14 December 2020.
HMRC may accept a claim made after the deadline if you had a reasonable excuse for failing to make a claim in time.
HMRC’s list of example excuses is as follows:
