Latest update made to : gov.uk/guidance/claim-for-wage-costs-through-the-coronavirus-job-retention-scheme.
It includes the following:
"To be eligible for the grant, when on furlough, an employee cannot undertake work for, or on behalf, of the organisation. This includes providing services or generating revenue. Employers are free to consider allocating any critical business tasks to staff that are not furloughed."
Please share your opinion on whether this now confirms that a single director cannot furlough his own pay, as even to instruct the payroll would amount to a "critical business task"...that should be allocated ..."to staff that are not furloughed"
