Job Retention Bonus

This bonus scheme was withdrawn in January 2021 following the extension of the Furlough scheme.

 

The Job Retention Bonus is a one-off payment to employers of £1,000 for every employee who they previously claimed for under the furlough scheme, and who remains continuously employed through to 31 January 2021.

 

Eligible employees must earn at least £520 a month on average between the 1 November 2020 and 31 January 2021.

 

Employers will be able to claim the Job Retention Bonus after they have filed PAYE for January and payments will be made to employers from February 2021.
