From February, HMRC will begin publishing details of employers who have claimed under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) on a monthly basis, in an attempt to deter fraudulent claims.

Employer details will be published for claims that cover periods from December onwards.

Details that will be published are:

  • Company name
  • An indication of the value of claims *
  • Company Registration Numbers (for those who have one)

*Details on the banded ranges are available here.

Employees will also be able to check if their employer has made a CJRS claim on their behalf through their online Personal Tax Account from February.

Employers who think they may be at risk of violence or intimidation from their name being publicised should contact HMRC with evidence.

If you have any questions related to the CJRS you may find our previous update on Navigating the key changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme extension useful. Alternatively, please do not hesitate to contact our Employment Tax team who will be able to assist with any queries.
