CJRS - Furlough - Little hope of an end

Who is looking forward to end September

Didn't find your answer?

The end of September has been in my head for months. The promised end of Furlough. I think its a case of "dream on". On one of the most beautiful days of the yesr the Government minister said this morning " Don't rule out an October firebreak". And what would that mean - probably a short return to Furlough involving more complicated calculations for a short period. If its only for a couple of weeks its even worse than a whole month or more. And more starters will be trawled in. I know I am "glass half empty" on this but I have hated it so much on ZERO hours employees that the thought of a resurgence throughout the winter does little for me. And even for salaried working out days v pay over a split month is so time consumimg. We were told no more "lockdowns". I expect they will be renamed "Firebreakers". Same meat different gravy. Please - you out there - tell me I'm being stupid but throughout all this we have been "drip fed" in preparation for things that happen.

I detest furlough, and feel it should have ended a couple of months ago. I just have this horrible feeling too, that furlough could suddenly be extended. I hope I'm wrong!

I don't think it will be extended. They need to draw a line under it and start to recoop as much as they can.

The Banks are already lined up to go into full recovery mode in October.

And HMRC are setting (unofficial) internal targets for the total amount of claims already paid out but that they want repaid.
