Sorry for yet another furlough question.
In the guidance I read today, people previously not eligible from furlough can now be eligible if they have been on an RTI between 20th March 2020 and 30 October 2020.
At first blush, this would seem to include people on an annual scheme reported on 31 March 2020.
Could we in theory average their hours and now claim? Or would they be excluded because their usual payroll period (i.e. 31 March each year) not have happened yet, so wouldn't yet be included in a payroll that can be furloughed?
I've read the updated guidance, and to be frank, I glazed over. I'm getting tired of this rubbish.
