There are a number of recorded webinars available which provide an overview about the support available, including:

  • Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (including scheme eligibility and how to make a claim)
  • Running your business through the coronavirus (including the deferral of VAT and income tax payments and Time to Pay arrangements)
  • Coronavirus: helping employers to support employees (including furloughed employees and Statutory Sick Pay)

There are also live webinars available. A live webinar is like watching a presentation being given - from the comfort of your own home. By logging in at the appropriate time through your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone, you will be able to listen to HMRC talking whilst watching their presentation.

You can also ask HMRC questions during live webinars using the on-screen text box.

The current webinars available (at the time of writing) are as follows:

COVID-19 – Job Retention Scheme – how to make a claim – provides a step-by step guide on how to make claim through the scheme, including essential information needed before you start, how to work out your claim and what happens after submitting your claim.

Wednesday 22 April 2020

  • 3.15 to 4pm
  • 4.15 to 5pm

To attend an upcoming live webinar, register and sign in at least 5 minutes before it starts.

The webinars are very popular and fill up quickly. HMRC will continue to make new dates and times available so if you would like to join one, keep checking back to GOV.UK for (or sign up to receive) new announcements. More information can be found on GOV.UK.
