Can furlough claim be made?

PAYE not submitted for furlough

Didn't find your answer?

Client bought an existing company on 1st January 2020. New PAYE scheme was registered. But the previous accountant did not send any RTI under new PAYE scheme.

Employees have been demanding furlough from new employer as they assumed that the previous accountant will have sent the data to HMRC which he didn`t.

Old PAYE scheme has ceased following company takeover.

I checked with HMRC but as no employee was showing on 19th March under new PAYE, they are unable to action anything.

Any pointers to resolve this?

Think you will struggle.
Read through sections 9 & 10 to see if you can make your circumstances fit:-

A Ltd sold their business to B Ltd who has now ceased to exist. PAYE only exists for B Ltd now.

Who was meant to deal with B Ltd PAYE. Directors should know as it is B Ltd directors responsibility to operate PAYE

Resolve it by stopping wasting your time claiming.

It's worth giving the JRS helpline a call. 08000 241 222.
They've been reasonably quick to answer when we've called and have had 3 claims, which I don't believe should have been accepted sorted over the phone.

You may be able to try under the TUPE rules if that applies to the company - best to give CRJS line a call

Tell the employees they can't demand anything. Even if new company could claim furlough its still the Employers choice to offer it.

Seems to be in the same black hole as annual director's PAYE schemes.

No filing before 19th in tax year, no claim.
