Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Can I just check, what does your business provide?
Thank you. The scheme is only those who have submitted a tax return for 2019. However, those who did not submit their tax return by the due date of 31 January 2020, and have not yet submitted one, can still submit a tax return for 2019 for a further four weeks from today. The good news is that there is nothing for you to do to claim the grant – it is something HMRC will determine and you will be contacted automatically by them so you just have to wait and see if you qualify.
Does this answer your query?
No, you claim that on their behalf. You have to furlough them first and they cannot do any work for you in the meantime. You would then claim from HMRC but the process has not been clarified yet
All the best
