Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.

As this is such a fast-developing situation, both employer and employee have to wait for the time being for the Government to release further details on the way this scheme will apply and the eligibility criteria.

Thank you

I can now confirm that all UK businesses can apply for this scheme
