HMRC publishing notes - furlough claims from December 2020

HMRC publishing notes - furlough claims from December 2020
HMRC will publish some of the employer’s claim information
 
As part of HMRC’s commitment to transparency and to deter fraudulent claims, they will be publishing information about employers who claim for December onwards on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. The following information will be published on GOV.UK from February 2021:
 
  • The employer name
  • An indication of the value of the claim
  • The company number for companies and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLP)
HMRC will also be improving the information available to employees by including details of claims made for them in their Personal Tax Account.
 
In the case of sole directors of owner managed businesses with no other employees who have been furloughed this could result in personal salary information being made public by way of the claim being disclosed. It is unclear at this stage whether a de minimis amount will apply.
 
We expect further information to be published including how the indicative value is to be arrived at. 
 
HMRC will not publish these details on GOV.UK if the employer can provide evidence that it would cause serious risk of violence or intimidation to certain individuals, or any individual living with them.
