I assume the £2500 furlough cap is subject to income tax?

Customer Question

I assume the £2500 furlough cap is subject to income tax? Therefore, if my gross salary was £5,000 per month, this is a significant drop in take home pay. No change to my tax code?
JA: Which tax year is this for?
Customer: This year
JA: Anything else you want the Accountant to know before I connect you?

Hello,I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

Tax codes do not change with variations in pay. They feed the tax tables which do account for such differences.
