Most people had never heard the word ‘furlough’ before last spring, but the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme proved to be a lifeline for many businesses and their employees. The scheme was completely new to the RfM Payroll team too but they would soon be claiming tens of thousands of pounds each month to help our clients pay their staff.
By the time the furlough scheme closes at the end of this month, our Payroll team and colleagues will have reached an unbelievable milestone: they have made claims totalling over £4 million of furlough support for our clients. This has been vital to keeping companies keep going and saving jobs.
A huge thank you to our Payroll clients and staff
You can imagine the amount of work that goes into processing so many claims alongside the team’s usual payroll duties (at times, we’ve needed to draft in up to five additional people to help!) and we appreciate your patience and understanding whilst they have been so busy.
Finally, we’d like to express our gratitude to our Payroll staff, colleagues drafted in to help, and every member of the wider RfM team who have kept things as close to ‘business as usual’ as possible over the last year and a half, despite the many challenges. You have all been amazing!
