If you have furloughed workers then you should check now to ensure that you have enrolled for PAYE online and have an ePay number.

Having enrolled for PAYE online is one of the requirements before being able to apply for the grant under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme; this enrolment can take up to 10 days.

It is likely that you only need to enrol separately if you did not get a login when you registered as an employer (which is is usually because you did not register online).

You will need this e-Pay number to apply when the portal opens on 20 April 2020.

If you need to enrol then you can follow the instructions on the link below.
