From the 28th of May, if employers want to make CJRS claims for 16 or more employees they can use HMRC’s updated templates therefore making it easier to add the details of multiple employees. The template can be found here:
If employers are therefore claiming for between 16 and 99 employees, they should use this template, if they are claiming for 100 or more employees they should use one of these templates.
Employers need to enter all of the information in the right format before uploading the completed template, so their claim is processed quickly and successfully.
HMRC have also updated these templates to help employers get their claim right first time and
provide all the information needed to ensure their claims are not delayed or stopped. For example, if employers cannot provide a National Insurance number for an employee, they can now select a reason for this.
If employers use one of the two templates and make a mistake, the file will not be accepted, and mistakes will be highlighted to help them put it right before they can resubmit their claim. Mistakes that will be highlighted include if they:
- input details in the wrong format
- give incorrect details
- duplicate or fail to give required information.
