The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), which was due to end on 31 October, will now be extended, with the UK government paying 80% of wages for the hours furloughed employees do not work, up to a cap of £2,500 for periods from 1 November.

Employers will need to pay all employer National Insurance Contributions (NICs) and pension contributions. They can choose to top up their furloughed employees’ wages beyond the 80% paid by the UK government for hours not worked, but they are not required to do so.


How to enter payments for Furloughed employees - this guide covered the steps on how to enter Furlough Payments for employees on Fixed and/or Flexible Furlough. It also covers instructions on how to download the CJRS form used in submitting a claim to HMRC.

Head to the Additions and Deductions tab using the navigation above, ensure Additions is selected on the 'Type' drop-down menu, then click +Add Record

Once you click add record, you will be greeted with a pop-up interface as shown below. Here, begin by selecting the Employee you are adding the Furlough payment for, under the Addition Name drop-down, select Furlough, then choose between Fixed/Flexible from the Furlough Type drop-down menu.

Fixed: Simply enter the total Furlough amount for the period you're processing into the Amount field

Flexible: Enter the total hours worked and the Furlough total hours and then the amount into the Amount field

Once the Addition has been added, you can now proceed to step 2: Process Payroll. Here, you simply need to process the Payroll using the standard 3-step process, Record Gross Pay > Run Pension Assessment > Process Payroll.  Click here for a walk-through on how to process Payroll in Capium.

Once the Payroll is processed, you will now be able to generate the CJRC form with details of the Furlough payments already added. To do this, head to Submission > FPS & EPS

Upon clicking the Covid-CJRC button, you will be presented with two options 80% or 100% Claim, select either of those dependent on circumstance, and download.
