Find out if you are eligible for Job Retention Bonus Scheme

Retailers can now find out if they are eligible to claim the Government's Job Retention Bonus Scheme.

The initiative which pays employers £1,000 for every employee they return from furlough and keep in their job until the end of January 2021, is designed to continue to support jobs through the UK’s economic recovery from coronavirus.

Retailers will be able to claim the bonus from February 15, 2021, to March 31, 2021, and remain eligible if they are receiving support from the recently announced Job Support Scheme, which launched on November 1.
