Furlough Fraud and the Potential Ramifications for Employers.
Wednesday, 30 September, 2020 - 9:30am
Online United Kingdom
HMRC has recently confirmed that fraud and error relating to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (“CJRS”) could amount to £3.5 billion in the UK. As the CJRS draws to a close, HMRC is now turning its attention to tackling furlough fraud and investigating potential breaches of the HMRC Direction. HMRC recognises that employers may have made mistakes in their calculations, as the CJRS is a new scheme and the guidance was at times confusing.

Our webinar is aimed at business owners and HR or those responsible for employee health and wellbeing, in addition to in-house lawyers.
