The announcement by the Chancellor confirmed:
We understand that full guidance will be provided on or around 10 November 2020. We will be updating our CJRS Q&A and will let you know when this is ready. In the meantime, the detail of what is known so far can be found within the Policy Paper “Extension of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme” published today, which can be found here:
IMPORTANT NOTE – As before, there will need to be a written agreement in place to furlough the employee (Furlough Agreement). The government has confirmed that the furlough agreement can be made retrospectively to have effect from 1 November 2020 and will be valid for the purposes of claiming the CJRS grant, provided that it was put in place by 13 November 2020. We are in the process of updating our template Furlough and Flexible Furlough Agreement letters and these will be available on our Customer Zone. Customers should ensure that these are put into place with furloughed staff by 13 November 2020 at the latest.
